    The quickest way to get yourself a Tallinn Card and start to explore the city is through Tallinn Card online shop. Just choose the Tallinn Card you want to purchase. The cards are valid for 24, 48 or 72 hours, with Tallinn Card PLUS you’ll get an extra hop-on, hop-off City Tour bus excursion in the city. There are different cards for children and adults.
