  • After visiting museums of contemporary art in the world even here could not miss a visit. First place: beautiful building of revente construction and futuristic architecture. Second thing is the largest Museum of modern art in Northern Europe (according to what I read before I crawl, Tallinn). Third thing I did not know anything about Estonian art and was a rich path between Impressionism and contemporary local art. I'm not a lover of Impressionism, however I have extensive experience in the field of modern art. What I saw really deserves it. Some of the most interesting artists for me: Lyudmila Siim, Poldroos, Enn, Ilmar Malin, Parker Kalio Henn Roode, etc. Well worth ...

  • The air you breathe in a Museum is always something magical. Inside you can see the great works of history Kumu Estonian art. Not to be missed for those who love to add a pinch of culture, pleasure trips. The Museum can be easily reached on foot from Kadriog (10 min or so). The entrance is free of charge.

  • If you haven't been, I would thoroughly recommend Kumu art museum in Tallinn certainly the best art museum in the region and a lovely architectural design. They have a stunning art collection, especially on the classic paintings, but also on the pop art and Soviet era. They also have a contemporary section on the top floor which also has a stunning view of the park. They also have a very nice terrace for watching people and enjoying the sun with a good cup of coffee
  • It's always interesting to come here. Exhibitions vary quite a bit and the whole building is a pleasant area to walk around. You can really choose where to go for yourself and everything is connected by elevators or stairs.
  • It's a beautiful building inside and out.
  • modern, baeutiful, must have to visit while staying in Tallinn
  • Modern (10 years old) art museum. Always interesting exhibitions.

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
