We have had lovely sunny summer days in Tallinn, but this week has been extremely hot. The temperatures have been close to 30 °C or over (usually it stays between 15 – 20 °C).

We share our five tips on how to stay cool under the hot sun in Tallinn.

Drink water – it’s free

The most important thing to remember, when a heat wave crashes is, is to drink lots and lots of water. Tallinn has clean high-quality tap water, that’s safe to drink. During a hot day, you should drink at least three litres of water (one litre for every 10 °C).

You can find free water stations in the city, where you can fill up your empty water bottle with fresh tap water. The stations are located in Harju street (next to Tourist Information Centre), Viru street (opposite of Hesburger), Politseiaed and Kadriorg Park (close to Weizenberg street). Most restaurants offer also free tap water.

Eat lots of ice cream

Dive into the cooling water

Chill out at the cinema

Visit cool attractions

When it gets really-really hot, it is best to stay inside and admire the cool attractions Tallinn has to offer. Museums and churches are perfect sights for hot weather. One place, that is definitely cool, is the Bastion Passages under Toompea hill. 

When museum hopping, it is wise to use Tallinn Card – a sightseeing pass that includes entrances to the city's top museums, attractions, and free access to public transport.
