A short but pretty interesting Walk-way through the historical part of the Tallinn’s sea-side connects Linnahall area (where the starting point is located) with Seaplane Harbour museum and continues a bit beyond. It cannot be considered as a traditional tourist route and in general is pretty specific – thanks to graffiti covered ruins of old industrial buildings, ugly garages, railroad track remnants and all other kinds of odd post-apocalyptic structures – mostly heritage of the Soviet era. From the other side it offers a great chance to observe Tallinn from a completely different side. And it’s a pretty nice track for jogging, by the way.
Although it looks pretty weird, this place has quite a rich history. For example, meter-sized letters “UN” (you won’t miss it for sure) inscribed on an old electric plant’s chimney’s basement not far away from Linnahall represent UN forces checkpoint as it can be seen in the famous science fiction movie ‘Stalker‘ directed by Andrei Tarkovsky in 1979 (It was shot mostly in Tallinn and adjacent areas).
Generally, I would suggest starting this route near the Linnahall, then taking a little lunch in Kohvik Moon and moving forward to Seaplane Harbour museum which is definitely one of the best sightseeings in Tallinn.
