26 Feb Estonia: Creative Things To Do In Tallinn
If you’re looking for a creative and hip item to include in your upcoming itinerary in Estonia, we highly recommend visiting the vibrant capital and creative hub of Tallinn!
The Telliskivi Creative City is an artist-friendly complex that has become a popular hangout for shoppers and restaurant-goers. Located in a reclaimed factory area not far from Old Town, it is Estonia’s biggest creative economic enterprise centre, bringing together a diverse range of activities and businesses. It offers design shops, restaurants/cafes, modern Co-working spaces, a home for more than 250 companies – many of them famous start-ups from all over the world!
More than anything, the hub is a bohemian place for relaxation and business that encourages people with similar interests to get together. Here’s 3 creative things you can do during your upcoming event or incentive in the area:
- LIFT99 Tallinn Hub – home of Estonian startup community
The flagship of the vibrant startup culture in Estonia is the gathering place for startup founders and ecosystem enablers, locals and foreigners alike, a community of lifters and inspirers, working hard to make our dreams come to life. Come for a visit and meet with local community and hear their success stories and get inspired!
The Tallinn branch of the renowned, Stockholm-based Fotografiska – photographic art center – has opened in Tallinn, offering fantastic new opportunities to combine culture with event hosting.
Located in the Telliskivi Creative City just outside the Old Town, the gallery chiefly specialises in world-class photo exhibitions, but also acts as a busy cultural hub where events, masterclasses and meetings with artists are regularly held.
Its flexible meeting space, a bright and open former factory hall on the building’s ground floor, measures 250 m2 and can accommodate up to 300 guests or even more when combined with the café area or courtyard. Conferences and other gatherings can easily be combined with a guided tour of the gallery.
The facility additionally includes a café, gift shop and a zero-waste midset restaurant – a particular bonus for organisers interested in sustainable catering. Headed by respected Estonian chef Peeter Pihel, Fotografiska Restaurant occupies the building’s top floor and offers amazing views.
3. Hektor Container Hotel
The Hektor Container Hotel is the only hotel in the Telliskivi area, Tallinn’s centre of attraction. Hektor has the local vibe – the hotel is set up in a Tsarist locomotive repair depot and the hotel rooms are in shipping containers. Out-of-the-box solutions have been used to create an environmentally friendly and boldly designed hotel that provides a novel and immediate experience for the hotel guest, but is also of value to the ever-evolving Telliskivi area. Some of the best local design shops are near the hotel for fellow design fans.
The hotel has 84 rooms. In addition, guests have access to a cooking area, an open office, a yoga room, comfortable seating areas, and a cosy lobby.
