Tallinn Estonia Museums

The Estonian capital Tallinn is located on the Baltic Sea and is breathtakingly beautiful, simply put: it is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

The medieval city wall stretches for almost 2 km, interrupted by old towers along its length and offers a wonderful view of the old town. There are hand-drawn plans for high-rise buildings and mega-structures that crown the exaggerated reconstruction of Tallinn's city centre. The exterior walls of these buildings, which are steeped in a bohemian flair, contain incredible huge murals that have developed into a visitor attraction of their own. They are beautiful buildings that can tell a story that spans centuries, from Estonia's history to its history as a trading city.

This special will give you the chance to capture the glory of the magnificent Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. The Danish King's Garden next to the cathedral offers seclusion and tranquility if you want to take a break while exploring. Perhaps you should visit the old town of Tallinn with its many museums and galleries.

The collection is full of medieval altarpieces, wood carvings and chandeliers from ecclesiastical art, as well as macabre Danse paintings by Bernt Notke from the 14th century. Other museum options include the Open Air Museum, which explores rural culture, and Mikkel, which exhibits ceramics and Chinese porcelain donated from private collections. Some of the most important historical sights are also in the museum, from which you might want to take some time to fall asleep.

Estonia's Occupation Museum also tells of the occupation of Estonia by Nazi Germany during World War II. Russian influence is evident in the Maarjamae war memorial, a concrete sculpture commemorating the fallen soldiers of the Red Army, designed by Allan Murdmaa and Matti Varik in 1975. There is a traditional Russian Orthodox Church and an impressive collection of art from Russia, but also from the Soviet Union.

The building itself impresses visitors the most and is a unique and high-quality museum piece. The spectacular design and creative exhibitions have made it the European Museum of the Year a few years after its opening.

The museum is housed in a historic seaplane hangar built in Estonia during the Russian Empire. Today it is the History Museum of Tallinn, which documents the military campaigns of the city. It is exceptionally well designed and houses a large collection of historical and military photographs of Estonia's history, as well as a number of other exhibits.

The building remained unfinished until 1725, when the tsar died, and in 1726 it took on its final appearance, although later members of the Russian royal family occasionally received visits. Built in 1916 as a seaplane for the Tsarist navy, it has survived centuries of turmoil in Tallinn. Viru works on a floor that is given to a KGB museum that tells the story of the KGB era, a time when the citizens lived an idyllic life outwardly, when in reality there was something quite different.

This attractive old theatre has a noble atmosphere that reflects the 1920s and 30s, when Estonia was an independent nation, artistically expressing itself in a new style for the time. But there is an impressive, crumbling wreck that is to be converted into a concert hall and conference centre. Far from the horror that often afflicts the place, Umami is steeped in a sense of Tallinn's history and cultural heritage.

The most fascinating museum highlight is the Lembit, a museum of 1930s submarines that was part of the Soviet naval forces during World War II. As the oldest submarine working in Estonia when it retired in 2011, it is extremely well preserved and fully explored. Other highlights include the country's oldest shipwreck recovered from the 16th century and a historic icebreaker that is buried as part of an open-air exhibition.

It is the perfect embodiment of elegance and restraint for the city, and it is tooma ilve that I have chosen. It showcases Estonia's growing rock and electronic scene at a variety of venues, including the country's oldest power plant, kultuurikatel.

Tallinn Music Week, which runs from 27 March to 2 April, offers a great overview of the music scene in Tallinn and a tour of some of Estonia's most popular venues.

The hotspot is the Telliskivi Creative City, a building that has been converted from a former warehouse into one of the most stylish and unusual restaurants in the city. This attraction was originally intended as an attraction for the younger visitors to the museum, but has proven to be a popular destination for visitors of all ages and the general public. The open space is surrounded by picturesque buildings on all sides, some of which are particularly striking.

In the Katharinenpassage you will find many artisans selling handmade goods, including hand-painted silk and glassware, as would have been the case in the early Middle Ages. Over the centuries, it served a number of functions, including as a bunker prepared for a nuclear attack.
