Tallinn Card recommends in April

In April we invite you to come and be a part of Tallinn’s historical and cultural heritage and enjoy sunny, Spring days at Tallinn Zoo. One especially fun way of experiencing Spring and the historical atmosphere of the city is to cycle through the unique and interesting nature trails and city districts.

Free with Tallinn Card

Tallinn Zoo

The new Polar Bear World opened at Tallinn Zoo in October, and it is lovely to watch the polar bears enjoying their new home. Spring is a wonderful time, when plants wake up, the sun shines more brightly, and new inhabitants of the zoo are born. April is an excellent time to visit the zoo and see the animals active - the cold of winter has gone and the heat of summer hasn’t worn the animals out yet.

Bastion Passages

The Bastion Passages belong to the Kiek in de Kök artillery tower. Alongside the city walls and towers, the secret underground passages and tunnels inside the bastions form a complete defensive complex. On the underground excursion visitors take a real trip through time, from the year 1219 right up to the 1980s, when the tunnels were a meeting place for punks under the Soviet regime. Make sure you pre-book your visit to the Bastion Passages, as access is only allowed with a guide.

Carved Stone Museum

The Carved Stone Museum is located in the Bastion Passages and exhibits the City Museum’s collection of carved stones. Portals, pillars, coats of arms with family symbols and window panes with reliefs from the 15th Century tell all sorts of tales from Tallinn’s history. The exhibition is named “The City of Ruins,” and the rooms are divided into four different themes, through “The Garden of Eden,” “The Pillar Hall,” “The Death Hall” and “The Sun Hall.” It is possible to visit the Carved Stone Museum as part of an excursion through the Bastion Passages.

Maiden's Tower

The Maiden's Tower (Neitsitorn) is a Medieval tower built in the 14th century, which nowadays houses the museum cafe. From the tower’s windows, visitors are treated to an amazing view of Tallinn Old Town and the Danish King’s Garden. On the second floor of the tower there is an exhibition about cafe culture called “Meet Me in the Cafe! Tallinn Cafe Culture in the 1920s and 30s,” a photo exhibition in the gallery of the Maiden Tower reflecting the period in the 1930s when it was used as a home, and an exhibition in the vaulted cellars called “Sweet Stuff” presenting sweets from the First Estonian Republic.
