Recently when we visited Tallinn we payed a visit to the prison museum Patarei. It was a place that brought many thoughts and emotions to the surface, and the quiet and empty rooms echoed of emptyness as well as they screamed to me loudly, all at the same time. I can’t believe this prison was still active at 2002 when the last prisoner was replaced to another prison.

I highly recommend paying a visit if you’re ever in Tallinn. Read up on the history beforehand, since the museum don’t offer any guided tours unless you’re a group of 10 or more.

Patarei Vangla, Kalaranna 2 ja 2a

Open every day from May to September from 12–19

Nothing ever ends poetically.

It ends and we turn it into poetry. All that blood was never once beautiful. It was just red.

Let me present to you my favorite spot in Tallinn, Leib Resto. My mum recommended it to us a few years ago and we decided to try their lunch out in the garden. The food was just my style, healthy, tasty, simple yet fantastic and the restaurant itself really cozy and nice. After trying their lunch we decided to go back the next day for dinner, and after that it has become our tradition to go their every time we visit.

The menu always feels fresh and in season and even though it’s somewhat fine dining, it’s still very affordable and not stiff at all. The atmosphere is really nice especially if you’re lucky enough with the weather to sit outdoors. I highly recommend to book a table, but it’s not necessary to book weeks ahead. A day or two beforehand has usually been enough. The restaurant it conveniently located on Uus street 31. Check out Leib Resto’s website and menu here!
