A complex of seaside-farmhouse over 150 years old is located in the picturesque coastal village of Pringi in Viimsi. Here you can get a glimpse of the everyday lives of villagers, of their work on both the land and sea, of their entertainment and village parties, their market days and holyday traditions.
The historical atmosphere is perfect for relaxing and the best place to admire the famous silhouette of Tallinn.

After that, we will have a short bus tour to see the following sights - TV Tower, Tallinn Song Festival Grounds, Kadriorg and the center of the city.
