Get out of the city for the day with this small-group tour from Tallinn to Paldiski, a former Soviet naval base known for its spectacular coastal limestone cliffs. Learn about the fascinating town, which was once off limits, from your guide and visit an old prison quarry, explore the cockpit of an old Soviet plane, and see a waterfall and the Neo Gothic Keila-Joa Manor.

Beautiful building from the inside. Usually we just see it from outside at the entrance of the Old Town. But worth a visit, the exposition is very well presented and gives us a lot of information about the history of shipping in Estonia.

The medieval Fat Margaret Tower and the Great Coastal Gate next to it were built to defend the city from the seaward side of town. The tower was completed in 1530. The round tower has a diameter of 25 meters and a height of 20 meters. The walls are 5 meters thick. After the two-year renovation of the Fat Margaret Tower and the Great Coastal Gate, the Estonian Maritime Museum was opened here in November 2019. From the tower's rooftop, you have panoramic views of the Tallinn harbor and Old Town.

The Fat Margaret Tower as an original part of the Estonian Maritime Museum was opened after the total renovation on November 28, 2019. And it’s really worth visiting it, if you interested in the topic. Plan at least 1,5 hours just for the exposition.

I stayed in room 109 as a single room. With en suite. The room was a good size and was exceptionally clean. The decor was slightly tired but the hostel is extremely well priced and good safe facilities. The location is perfect for easy access to the city and the port. Less than 10 minutes each way. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful and English was perfect. I would highly recommend. Was an incredibly safe and well run Hostel.

The museum costs £10 per adult and £5 for 9-18. It has a very nice collection of ship models across many floors. There are nice sitting area you can listen to history and great view from the the top to see the city.
