 Creative incentive ideas

From medieval themed city tours or yachting on Tallinn Bay to adrenaline-filled rally parks – there is a lot to experience in Tallinn and its surrounding areas, regardless of the season.

Conveniently compact

Tallinn is not a big city. With only 450,000 inhabitants, Tallinn manages to be just big enough to offer constant diversity and change, but comfortably small enough to make it easy to get from one place to another. Tallinn airport is a mere 10-minute tram or car ride from the city centre and the harbour is walking distance from the Old Town. So when in Tallinn, don’t be afraid to travel on foot – everything is close and the way is beautiful. Tallinn Transportation Department now also offers a chance for conferences to apply for free public transportation for their delegates. For more information, contact Tallinn Convention Bureau.

Centuries’ worth of history and culture

With our historically strategic and exciting location, Tallinn has amassed a diverse cultural heritage, which is evident when considering the varied areas that build up contemporary Tallinn. The medieval hanseatic old town of Tallinn gives the city a fairy-tale like ambience, and is surrounded by distinctive and colourful districts such as Kalamaja, Noblessner and Rotermanni, which have been built in the centuries that followed and are ideal for experiencing Tallinn’s local everyday life.

Tallinn is a Smart City

In a world where technological advances are happening in an increasingly growing speed, Tallinn is proud to be in the front run of the race. The city has implemented numerous innovative smart solutions; for example, we have a regular bus route “manned” by a driverless bus. You can also meet some adorable package delivery robots on the streets of Tallinn. The city of Tallinn is also home to high-level universities, Tallinn University of Technology and Tallinn University, which are excellent cooperation partners for technology-oriented and academic conferences and events.

Did you know?

The construction of Tallinn must never be completed.

According to legend, the Old Man of Ülemiste Lake has promised to flood the city when it is finally completed. Each year, he travels to the city centre, where Old Toomas watches over Tallinn from atop the Town Hall tower, and asks him if the city is completed. Old Toomas always replies that the city is still undergoing construction, thus delaying the promised flood by another year.
