Tallinn Card recommends – where to go and what to do in Tallinn

Tallinn Card is an all-in-one sightseeing card that grants you free entrance to top 40 museums and sights, a free ride with public transport, discounts for tours, entertainment, restaurants and stores. Here you will find monthly recommendations by the Tallinn Card team for exciting attractions and activities.

July is the month of traditional theme festivals in Tallinn, such as the Medieval Days and the Tallinn Maritime Days, which draw visitors from near and far. This year, however, is special because it is also time for the jubilee year of the Song and Dance Celebration – this year marks 150 years from the first song festival and the dance festival will be held for the 20th time. In addition to these larger festivals, we also recommend taking in the exciting sights and tours for the whole Tallinn experience. 

Free with the Tallinn Card:

Town Hall and Town Hall tower 


The gothic style Town Hall, which is the best remaining construction of its kind in Northern Europe, was completed in 1404. Today it serves as the location for the formal receptions of the city government, as a museum and a concert venue. A medieval spiral staircase takes visitors to the 34- metre high bell tower balcony, where a view opens up on the entire Old Town and its surroundings – a wonderful spot to admire the bustling Medieval Days. With the Tallinn Card, visits to the Town Hall as well as the tower are free of charge. 

Tower of the Dome Church 


Another wonderful spot to get a great view of the old town is the 13th century Dome Church, located on the central square of Dome Hill. Dome Church is special because of the wooden memorial plaques, most of which dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries. With the Tallinn Card, you can also visit the 69-metre high baroque bell tower of the Dome Church, built in 1779, free of charge. 

Estonian Theatre and Music Museum 

For all those coming for the Song Celebration, it would definitely be interesting to visit the Estonian Theatre and Music Museum, which currently has the exhibition on the 150-year history of the Song Celebration. The exhibit also includes the first song book, the signs and souvenirs from the museum’s archives, as well as the singers’ memories and personal stories. Of course, visitors are also welcome to the permanent exhibition “Stories and songs”, where theatre and music tell the stories that belong among the classics of Estonian literature, and you can hear the songs that all Estonians know by heart. These stories and songs also paint a picture of the history of Estonia, in which music as well as theatre hold an important place.  

Discounts with the Tallinn Card:

CitySightseeing Tallinn – open top bus tour
