Second Part of Tallinn Old Town and Kalamaja Tour:

This neighborhood is famous for its wooden houses and bohemian charm. Kalamaja literally means fish house in Estonian, and starting from the 14th century the area was traditionally dominated by fishermen, fishmongers, and Boatwrights.

Clever use of space and dedicated use of local produce makes the local restaurant and cafés an integral part of the Kalamaja atmosphere. The wooden houses built to accommodate these workers became Kalamajas architectural legacy and are now what gives the neighborhood its unforgettable charm.
