The Port of Tallinn in Estonia has opened an environmentally sustainable terminal that uses solar panels and sea power to operate during the cruise season and to host events, concerts and conferences during the low season.
According to Valdo Kalm, chairman of the management board of the Port of Tallinn, the port has made thorough preparations to ensure the safety and comfort of those passing through the terminal when cruising into Tallinn. “In addition, we are helping cruise operators to provide an environmentally conscious service to passengers and to make visiting Tallinn as smooth as possible,” he says.
A new promenade connects the terminal to the “culture kilometre”– a direct walkway between the port area and numerous new leisure areas. The development allows tourists to easily access the Unesco World Heritage site in Old Town, as well as food and drink destinations along the seafront.
Also close by are three new attractions: the Patarei Sea Fortress, a large historical fortification now hosting bars, food trucks and open-air events; the Seaplane Harbour, a three-level naval museum featuring historical ships and submarines; and Noblessner, a seaside cultural area with high-end restaurants, museums and bars.
