Tallinn Pirita area

A bit futher out from Kadriorg there is another district that provides an very good escape from the downtown bustle. This is the area of Pirita. , only a 10 minute ride from the city centre. If like me you love the sea, this district of Tallinn is a great place to relax and walk by the water. For a few kilometers it is possible to follow the ocean from the center of Tallinn to Pirita beach. One of the best summer getaways.

Even if Tallinn stay a quiet capital, when you get here though, you would never believe you were in the same universe as the rest of Tallinn because you are surrounded by dense forest, fresh air and amazing view on the ocean. This is the advantage of not very big cities, being able to get out of the city quickly in a few minutes.

The run to Pirita, the neighborhood to the northeast of Tallinn, is notable for the great views of the Tallinn Bay from the 4 km waterfront path. Pedestrians have their very own lane along the water making this one of the safest and most popular running spots in the city. In addition, the most fun way to go is to rent an electric scooter, the popular means of transport in Tallinn, even more used than the bicycle. It is the land of scooters, easily accessible through an online application. The other option is to take a bus or just walk. I really like the electric scooter for its playful aspect.
