About Tallinn

Tallinn ferry port is located on the Gulf of Finland, on the Northern coast of Estonia. Tallinn is the capital city of Estonia. The ferry port of Tallinn is the biggest and rapidly developing cargo and passenger port not only in Estonia but also in the surrounding Baltic region. Although the Estonian civilization is very old, the region has seldom existed as an independent state. Throughout Tallinn's tumultuous past, the city has changed hands many times - from the original Estonians, to the Danes, the Hanseatic League, the Teutonic Knights, the Swedes, the Russians, and the Germans.

A succession of conquerors left their marks on Tallinn city; they constructed fortresses and cathedrals to serve their interests in Estonia. Today visitors can wander through Tallinn, and trace the history of the entire Baltic Sea region.

The areas such as Toompea, Lower town, Kadriorg and Pirita are the older areas of the worth exploring for their architectural abundance. This part of Tallinn is recognised by UNESCO as the world heritage site. You can purchase "Tallinn Card" from the local tourist office which gives the holder access to free local public transport and entry to most attractions.

    • We booked a seat in the lounge , we were expecting a seat in a large area with all the other travellers. What we got was a small secluded lounge with great service , food and beverages, is 9.00 am too early for alcohol? As a group we were very happy and totally surprised, if we were ever going on this journey again we would book a seat in the lounge , what great value.

    Great journey!
    • It was a very comfy and nice journey, I would have liked more toilets onboard, the few there were were kind of always busy due to the quantity of people on the trip.

    Tourists will take photos...
    • Everything was fine, the ship is amazing. However I did had a bad experience with one of the crew members. It was right after I got onboard when one of the crew members asked me what I was doing with my phone (I was taking photos - not of her though). I said that I'm taking photos and she said it's not allowed to take photos inside the ship (!?!?) The only problem is I've never seen any 'no camera' sign. I don't understand what was she thinking, tourists like and will always take photos, if she don't like it well that's unfortunately her and her only problem.
