Tallinn Christmas Market

I had a chance to visit the Christmas Market in Tallinn a few days ago. Tallinn is famous for having the first Christmas tree! 1441 is the year it appeared, if the legend is true…

The Christmas market was very cute, it had a lot of traditional handicrafts, candy and of course Glögg. In Tallinn Glögg contains alcohol more often than not, so make sure to check before purchasing what kind it is you’re getting. Make sure to taste the blueberry glögg, it’s a bit exotic! (But in my opinion the normal one is better!)

The market has a lot of cool performances on the stage. If that’s something you think you would enjoy make sure to check before what time the performances are.

I absolutely recommend the market if you happen to be in Tallinn during Christmas! It’s a great experience and gives a good look into Estonias culture and crafts.
