Unique Culture. Beautiful Architecture. Incredible Location.
Tallinn isn't as well known as it should be, which is probably something that won't last long. Beautiful cafés and restaurants with free WiFi permeate this "e-city" that has placed unparalleled emphasis on digital connectivity. And in the summertime, people are always outside, playing music, hanging out, and dancing. It might be one of the best places in Europe to set up as a remote worker.
If the character-filled urban beauty isn’t enough for you, the festivals and excellent cuisine definitely should be. The city is full of stunning architecture, impressive restaurants, and cobblestone roads that are ready to explore. Get ready to dive into a place that’s unique and full of culture, which is a nice contrast to Estonia’s designation as the most e-friendly country in the entire world!
The best preserved medieval city in Northern Europe, and a UNESCO world heritage capital city, Tallinn was founded in the 13th century. Since then, many countries have taken turns ruling the seaside city, including Danes, Swedes, Germans, and Russians. Tallinn Old Town is still protected by the remnants of the city wall, and the medieval houses and alleyways that comprise its architecture are nothing short of legendary. Photos don't do it justice though - you really need to see and feel this city to capture the essence of Tallinn.
From cozy cafes overlooking the Baltic Sea, to medival brick restaurants on cobblestone pathways, Tallinn features incredile food and drink options. Forget simply eating and drinking to live - live for the experience that this city provides.
Estonian residents do everything online, whether it’s voting or signing official documents. This means there is less bureaucracy, while also adding more transparency and efficiency in vital sectors such as healthcare and education. E-Residency is a new digital nation for global citizens - perfect for digital nomads - powered by the Republic of Estonia. This is the first country in the world to offer e-Residency, a government-issued digital ID available to anyone from any nationality. E-Residency offers the freedom to easily start and run a global business in a trusted EU environment. Estonia offers more than 600 e-services to citizens and more than 2,400 to businesses. You can obtain an Electronic ID card in Tallinn, which effectively acts as an online passport.
The famous Estonian Song Celebration dates back to 1869, attracting thousands of singers and dancers to Tallinn. This is the local signature event and a reason why Estonia is often referred to as the "singing nation.” This mesmerizing event has even earned the song and dance celebration a place at UNESCO's prestigious list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.
Estonia's capital is great year-round, but summer is a special time with the long days and bright sun illuminating the streets. Experience traditional 18th century Estonian life without the snow and cold, and sample handmade chocolates or jump into the contemporary art scene. It’s all possible, all summer long!
Just a short, beautiful ride across the Gulf of Finland (in the Baltic Sea) lies Helsinki, the capital of Finland. Although Tallinn is so beautiful you won't want to leave, it’s still pretty cool to hop over to another gorgeous country for a weekend. Have a bit more time on your hands? Hop on a ferry to Sweden, which is a little farther away but just as intriguing.
We are still finalizing accommodations for our home in Greece - you'll have more details when we do! :)
If you’d like to find out more about what it’s like to live in Tallinn as a ‘digital nomad’, including internet speeds, cost of living, and coworking spaces, have a look at Nomad List’s guide. The pace of life is a bit more busy here with a lot of expats and e-nomads around. For that reason it was possible to upgrade our internet connection to one of the best in the city. Of course, we always have internet backups; we'll have MiFi devices with mobile data in all our homes to make sure that we can keep working productively if there are any stability issues.
Our homes are a collection of spacious apartments, in the best possible location; a quiet area just a few steps from all the action.
