During your stay in Tallinn, we suggest you to visit the district of Viimsi
Jutting out from the coast just 15km north of Tallinn’s city centre, the rocky Viimsi peninsula is both a nature-lovers’ getaway and a valued destination for history buffs. It’s the perfect place to spend a day on the beach or relax at a spa. Some of the attractions to be discovered:
Estonian War Museum
Estonian war history takes us back to the age of the Viking, tells Estonia’s story in the time of the Livonian Crusade and concludes with the present day Estonian mission in Afghanistan. The museum is housed in Viimsi manor once the summer cottage of famed Estonian War of Independence leader Johan Laidoner.
Museum of Coastal Folk
This authentic maritime museum, situated in the old school house of Pringi village, exhibits the crafts of fishing, boat building and seal hunting.
Viimsi Open Air Museum
This museum exhibits historic fishing village life, displaying old fishing tools and showing the ways in which they were used. On Saturday a farm market is held in the museum’s yard from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
RMK Viimsi Nature Centre
The State Forest Management Centre’s (RMK) Viimsi nature centre is the first of its kind to operate near to Tallinn. It’s situated in the former forest district house. You can ask information about hiking in the forest or take part in educational walks.
St. Jacob’s Church in Viimsi boasts modern architecture well suited to the seashore landscape. This is the only Lutheran church built in Estonia after the World War II. Although designed to be modern, architects Martin Aunin and Erkki Ristoja have followed all the canons of classical sacral building.
