    Rotermann Quarter

    For a true taste of 21st century Tallinn, take a stroll through this factory area turned bustling commercial/cultural centre.

    Its avant-garde architecture stands as a powerful symbol of just how far the city has come in re-inventing itself in recent times. Until just a few years ago, the Rotermann factory area between Old Town and the Passenger Port was little more than a collection of dilapidated buildings, discarded leftovers of late 19th and early 20th-century industry. Now the area has been magnificently-restored and serves as home to a number of shops and restaurants, as well as an active cultural scene. The quarter's main square is often used for festivals and outdoor performances.
