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.

  • modern and a contrast to the other parts

    This quarter is such a contrast of the other old parts! It offers nice shops and is pretty to see. You also can find good restaurants here.

  • Not as cool and intersting as expected

    Rotermann quarter has a lot of new buildings with lots of chains and some bars. There's a few places to actually discover but in all I was disappointed, it did look a lot more exciting in pictures.

  • Fine, but not worth going out of your way for.

    Adapted old buildings for modern purposes. Very close to town centre. Near modern shopping centre. Plenty of food choices.
