Walking and Cycling
The location of the venue offers an excellent opportunity to enjoy a beautiful walk by the seaside. Coming from the city centre you can follow the newly-built promenade Reidi tee. Although the walk is about 4 kilometres in total, it offers some of the best-known views to the Tallinn panorama and the Tallinn bay. Those who find themselves in a hurry half way through the walk, can grab an electric scooter readily available in several points. Just download the app of Bolt, Tuul or Bird, find the closest scooter and the ride can start. The price differences between different service providers are minor – Bolt: € 0,50 + € 0,15 min, Tuul € 1 + € 0,15 min and Bird € 1 + € 0,15 min.

For taxis the starting fare can be maximum of € 5.50 and fee per kilometre maximum of € 1.10. Using the ride-sharing apps the fee depends as usual based on supply and demand, but you will get the indication of the final price before ordering.
