In a recent trip to Tallin [you can see the photo essay here], I just realized I´ve visited the estonian capital four times! Compared to other cities, I must confess that I´ve been there enough to make me wonder what drives me again and again: is it the well preserved medieval old town? perhaps the mix of sovietic and nordic architectures in the city center? or maybe the locals.
In fact, among the Baltic countries, I´ve found Tallin the most cosmopolitan city: everywhere you can hear different languages (thanks to the tourists but also to the expats), locals are friendly and open-minded; but also there´s a vibrant cultural scene and it´s easy to find an event to go.
One of my last discoveries in the estonian capital is Telliskivi Creative City [you can see the photo essay here]. Located in Kalamaja district (after the main train station), this old factory complex became a magnet for creative companies and offers a variety of services: concert halls; theatre stage; and galleries; bars, shops and rehearsal spaces.
Telliskivi is the perfect spot to go for a drink and relax with (old and new) friends. Art is everywhere and many of the walls are covered with graffiti. Telliskivi Creative City is definitely the place to go… hereafter, I know, is one of the reasons that will make me return to Tallin.
