Local designers, international high street brands and signature Estonian handicraft can all be found under the same roof in larger Estonian supermarkets. Even though Estonia as a country is one of the smaller ones, the shopping centres are big enough to lose track of time and spend a day there. A day out in a shopping centre can be as pleasant as sightseeing, with many Estonian shopping centres showing off pristine interiors and housing a range of restaurants. Also entertainment like a cinema, skating rink and sport clubs may be found in many shopping centres. And if you get hungry experiencing all this – you have quite wide selection of sushi, pizza and other cafes and restaurants on the spot.
Viru Keskus is more than just a shopping centre – it is Estonia’s fashion mecca, the heart of the city, a great place to meet, an entertainment complex, and the flag-bearer for contemporary culture. You can easily fill a day here – browsing the city’s best stores and most popular brands and enjoying concerts, fashion shows, and a range of other events. Viru Centre is connected to Tallinna Kaubamaja, another big shopping centre.
The modern Solaris Centre is a combination shopping mall and cultural centre located right in the heart of the downtown area. In addition to a number of stores and restaurants, it encompasses a 3D multiplex cinema, an art-house cinema, and the grand Alexela Concert Hall, which seats over 1800 spectators. At Solaris you will also find several design shops offering local Estonian design.
A location close to the Passenger Port D terminal makes this shopping centre convenient for anyone heading out on one of the Tallink ferries. Nautica Centre has approximately 60 shops, new leisure and entertainment facilities and extensive dining options.
