Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Other
Nestled against the shores of the Gulf of Finland, Pirita features the city's largest beach and some of its most upscale residential areas. Once a separate town, the area was incorporated into the national capital during the 20th century. Visit the district and explore its multitude of beachfront spaces, including Tallinn's premier waterfront area, complete with soft sand and boardwalks. You'll find that the area's heavily forested landscape and gardens feel like a far cry from the nearby urban bustle. Don't miss seeing the ruins of the convent of St. Bridget, a 15th-century complex that gave birth to the neighborhood itself. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Tallinn holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Pirita and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
