    According to our guide this was a derelict post Russian industrial area, but now transformed to a trendy neighbourhood offering entertainment and recreation in style, bravo...

  • Rotermann Quarter, simple and quiet

    Rotermann Quarter is beautiful and quiet place to visit in Tallinn. There are lot of fashion stores there and it’s one of the best places to take photos in Tallinn.

  • Old Russian Factories now the Center of Chic Tallinn

    I have to say I'm a little biased. I've been visiting Tallinn for more than 15 years and have seen Rottermanni Quarter go from dilapidated buildings to what is now the chicest part of Tallinn...
