Rotermann Quarter in Tallinn

The historical Rotermann Quarter is located in the heart of Tallinn between the Old Town, the port and Viru Square. It is the most attractive quarter in the city, where old industrial buildings that have been given new functions stand next to modern architecture.

The industrial quarter underwent rapid development in the 19th century, eventually housing a wide variety of factories, plants, mills and stores. Some of these buildings are still standing today and are unique in terms of their architecture. The Rotermann Salt Store, which was constructed in 1908 to the plans of Baltic German engineer Ernst Boustedt, has been placed under heritage protection and is currently home to the Estonian Architecture Museum.

Coca Cola Plaza, a multiplex cinema with 11 screens, opened in the Rotermann Quarter in 2001 - the same year that the area was named one of cultural and environmental value.
