Speaking of churches. Of course, there are loads of them in the Old Town. The most beautiful church has to be the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, which was built in the late 19th century. The main square in the Old Town is the Town Hall Square. It's always really crowded. There's also a great Christmas market here during the pre-Christmas season.
Balti Jaama Turg – More than just a market
To the northeast of the Old Town is Tallinn's main train station, called Balti Jaam (Baltic Station). Right next to it is the Balti Jaama Turg, without a doubt the coolest market in Tallinn.
The market complex with its striking zig-zag roof has just been freshly renovated. Meat, fish and, vegetables are some of the things sold at the market. But we were most excited about all the food stalls. From Japanese soups to delicious burgers to vegan wraps, it has everything a gourmet's heart desires.
The area right next to the market hall offers a stark contrast: While the food stalls are mostly frequented by the young, hip residents of Tallinn, the antique market feels like you've traveled back in time 40 years. If you're into Soviet trinkets and Lenin statues, you can stock up on them here.
Telliskivi – The creative center of Tallinn
Next to the Balti Jaama Turg, Tallinn's next attraction awaits: Telliskivi Creative City. Creative companies, galleries, design shops, and some of the best bars and cafés in Tallinn have settled in this former industrial complex.
Hundreds of events take place in the Telliskivi grounds every year: concerts, exhibitions, flea markets.
