Rotermann Quarter in Tallinn

In Rotermann Quarter, in the heart of Tallinn, between the Old Town, the port, and Viru Square, old industrial buildings that have been given new functions stand next to modern architecture.

The industrial area started to thrivingly develop in the 19th century and it was the location for a department store, a factory that produced starch, spirit, tables, and pasta, a mill that produced bread, flour, and groat, buildings of a steam saw, and a salt warehouse, which is one of the most unique preserved limestone structures in Estonia. Currently, the building houses the Museum of Estonian Architecture, which was built on the basis of a design by a Baltic German Ernst Boustedt in 1908.

There are several restaurants, shops, and the multiplex Coca Cola Plaza in Rotermann Quarter.

  • Where modern meets traditional.

    Stayed here for weekend, great Airbnb. Ideally situated. The architecture is stunning, love the way traditional buildings have been extended upwards. Plenty of shops if they’re your interest.

  • Disappointing

    Well the guidebook said this was ‘the’ place to shop for local designers so after visiting the old town, headed to this place expected to be wowed. Not quite. Most of the shops are international...

  • new architecture

    It is nice to me that the Estanians in Tallinn have a new one in addition to an old architecture. I took pictures with pleasure.
