Pirita – Sea adventure & Historical landmarks

Add to Favourites

With its popular beach, adventure park and yachting harbour, Pirita is Tallinn's destination for summer fun. The district, only a few kilometres from the city centre, is also one of breathtakingly beautiful nature and the refreshing scent of pine trees.

In the early 20th century, this seaside area began to develop into a destination for Sunday rides and bathing, and the sandy beach is still a huge draw whenever the weather turns warm. 


A quieter way to enjoy Pirita is to head across the road to the Pirita River delta, where row boats, canoes and water bicycles can be rented. This is the location of Pirita's own little piece of medieval architecture – the ruins of 15th century St. Bridget’s Convent. The convent is still active today, although it is housed in a modern building beside the ruins.

In 1980, the sailing regatta of the Moscow Olympic Games was held in Pirita, and the area was also the heart of the Olympic village. 

Visitors can enjoy a meal and sea view in one of the pubs and restaurants by the Pirita coast. Further inland, Pirita boasts the Tallinn TV Tower, home to the highest viewpoint in the country. The Tallinn Botanic Garden is located nearby. Filled with rare plant species, the garden is a perfect place to go for a walk or do sports.
