What's not included

Entrance to Seaplane Harbour
  • See archaeological artifacts dating back to the 14th century and learn how maritime trade worked centuries ago
  • Marvel at a huge 20-meter long shipwreck – a medieval cargo ship – the hull of which remains in good condition
  • Look at detailed, cross-sectional models of old Estonian sailing ships and the instruments used to navigate

Tallinn's society and economy have been shaped by the sea for centuries. At the Fat Margaret cannon tower, you can learn about medieval shipping from the 16th century right up to the present day, through hundreds of unique artifacts.

You'll also have the chance to see a medieval shipwreck known as the cog which remains in impressive condition. Learn about the Hanseatic trade network that benefited Estonia – from sails to steam power, you can find it all inside.

Use digital displays to see how busy maritime traffic is in the 21st century, and put yourself in the shoes of a sailor and solve navigation puzzles to see if a life at sea is for you.

You'll also be able to hear first-hand tales from the seas from sailors who have served on Estonian ships and browse through documents that date back to the 19th century.

Очень интересное и красивое место. Сложно было найти парковку и на это ушло 40 минут 🙈 в зоне старого города парковаться нельзя но информации об этом нигде нет!
