Pirita, Tallinn

4.0
Nestled against the shores of the Gulf of Finland, Pirita features the city's largest beach and some of its most upscale residential areas. Once a separate town, the area was incorporated into the national capital during the 20th century. Visit the district and explore its multitude of beachfront spaces, including Tallinn's premier waterfront area, complete with soft sand and boardwalks. You'll find that the area's heavily forested landscape and gardens feel like a far cry from the nearby urban bustle. Don't miss seeing the ruins of the convent of St. Bridget, a 15th-century complex that gave birth to the neighborhood itself. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Tallinn holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Pirita and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

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.
