Culture in Tallinn

Looking for culture? Well you've come to the right place! Tallinn may be a tiny fraction of the size of London, Paris, Moscow and Berlin (only 430,000 people to be precise!), but it still boasts a surprisingly beefy cultural programme for tourists and locals alike.

Reviews about Culture in Tallinn

Although I am originally from Stockholm, Sweden. I live in the USA (Maryland) since 1979 but look at St Olav's Church as a treasured family church and parish. One of my more recognized (Reval) ancestor was Heinrich VIII von Knorring (1595-1679) that was buried at the church on March 6, 1679. Additionally, many additional ancestors were baptized, confirmed, married and laid to rest at the church. Heinrich is my 9th Great Grandfather. Given the opportunity I would love to visit Reval and, St Olof's Church especially. Time will tell. Dan

It was amazing to discover a rare old portrait of Mikhail Fyodorovich, the grandfather of Peter the Great. Turns out that a copy of the portrait displayed in the Russian Tretyakov gallery but the original is kept in this small house. Undoubtedly worth a visit. And ask for a guided tour!
