Other Side of Tallinn Tour

Tour information

Do you wanna see Tallinn from a different perspective? «The Other Side of Tallinn Tour» covers the alternative side of Tallinn and shows you the less glamorous sights. The first stop will be at Kalamaja, which is renowned for being among the top hipster neighborhoods in the world. From there the tour leaves the bikes behind and heads straight into the haunting grounds of Patarei prison to explore it, and then afterwards to the mammoth-steel-reinforced concrete shell that is the Seaplane harbour. From there the tour goes to a lesser-known area of Kopli where a strange mixture of Soviet architecture, sandy beaches and awesome views welcome you. On the beach there will be a lot of storytelling, since the place holds plenty of fascinating stories from Soviet times. After enjoying a little break at Stroomi beach, we’ll head through Telliskivi Loomelinnak, which is a former brickwork that has been turned into a creative city. We’ll visit the Balti Jaam market that will really throw you back to the Soviet times. After that the tour wraps up and heads back to the City Bike Office.
