Rocca al Mare – Sea air & Recreation

Add to Favourites

Sitting at the western edge of the city is the coastal Rocca al Mare district. The area's name, meaning 'Rock by the Sea' in Italian, comes from a summer manor established here in 1863 by local baron Arthur Girard de Soucanton.

That estate is now the site of the sprawling Estonian Open Air Museum, a forested park where traditional Estonian village life is recreated. The museum is home to 74 buildings from the past two centuries, including farms, mills, net sheds, a village school, a chapel, a fire house and more. Museum workers in period costume demonstrate the crafts of old and provide a glimpse into the lifestyles of bygone days. 


The area also holds some other interesting attractions like the Tallinn Zoo, which claims one of the best collections in the Nordic/Baltic region, and the FK Keskus centre where adrenaline seekers can try their hand at motorised karting and paintball.

The intriguing dining choices in the area include family-friendly restaurants like the traditional Kolu Kõrts tavern in the Estonian Open Air Museum, more modern restaurants like Lucca and Rucola, and Meistri Lyon, famous for its pastries. Additionally, there's the large Rocca al Mare shopping centre, which offers a broad range of cuisine options as well as hundreds of top brand names, both local and international.
