Tallinn Maritime Days invite you to a grand adventure, featuring vessels from sailboats to steamboats!

This year’s Maritime Days invite visitors to a gripping journey through maritime history, introducing vessels from sailboats to steamboats. Guests of the Maritime Days this summer include sailing ships Tre Kronor from Sweden and Libava from Latvia as well as thrilling steamers TursoLeppävirta and Lalli from Finland. After long leisurely years, Estonia’s own historic S/S Admiral will fire up her steam boilers on Tallinn Bay and the vessels Kajsamoor and Hoppet, owned by Estonian Historic Ships Union (Eesti Ajalooliste Laevade Selts), will also hoist their sails to harness a few waves. The vessels unite their browess to celebrate the centennial of the steam-powered icebreaker Suur Tõll.

As customary, Maritime Days will feature among other attractions inter-harbor boat rides on recreational crafts, matutinal sunrise concerts on Tallinn Bay, Tallinn Race regatta and a multitude of free concerts by popular musicians as well as a shopping street and a large inviting children’s area at Old City Harbor (Vanasadam). This year’s never-seen-before attractions include a life raft based motion picture experience by the puppet animation studio Nukufilm, Maritime Days Maritime Fair and a boatload of other new and exciting events.

Another new feature is the opportunity to enjoy a recreational boat ride from Old City Harbor to Noblessner Harbor (during previous Maritime Days, recreational crafts sailed between Old City Harbor and Seaplane Harbor). All of the activities on the pier at Noblessner Harbor are organized this year by the well-known Estonian open air music festival Eesti Pops.

Tallinn Maritime Days take place on July 18-20 in three downtown harbors in Tallinn as usually - Old City Harbor, Seaplane Harbor and Noblessner Harbor.
