The city development strategy „Tallinn 2035“ aims that Tallinn is a hospitable and balanced tourist destination.
Tallinn’s tourism development is balanced – the city’s visitors will get a pleasant experience and the locals feel the benefits of the tourism sector. The positive impact of tourism is at maximum and the negative impact is at minimum.
When developing Tallinn as a tourist destination, sustainable principles are applied to environmental, economic and socio-cultural aspects.
- makes optimal use of environmental resources
- respects the socio-cultural authenticity of local communities, preserves cultural heritage and contributes to intercultural understanding
- ensures long-term economic functioning, bringing social and economic benefits to all parties, including steady employment, additional income opportunities and services for the local community
The development of products and services for visitors of Tallinn is environmentally friendly and respectful of the local community. The local tourism sector is conscious of environmentally friendly management practices, of the principles of universal design and of responsible business management. The local tourism sector applies this knowledge in the development of tourism services and shares this knowledge with its visitors.
