Short winter vocabulary for your Tallinn trip

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

By Noora Karppi  •  02.01.2018

Winter is one of the top 4 loveliest seasons we have. Sometimes greatly and unfairly unappreciated. Those who’ve  visited Tallinn during winter know that Tallinn turns into magical wonderland when the snow falls and covers the red rooftops with white powder.

Ice skating in the heart of the Old Town, sleigh riding through the snowy parks and forests, cup of hot chocolate in the cosiest café, and warming up in front of a fireplace – who wouldn’t enjoy these small pleasures of winter?

As you are now booking your next winter trip to Tallinn. Here’s our short vocabulary that will come in handy. It’s nothing difficult. We promise.

Don’t forget to check our short summer vocabulary also.
