Tallinn’s Harbour Cruise Terminal Roof Promenade
The Tallinn Harbor Cruise Terminal is an open area in the center of the city at Vanasadam harbor. A promenade is built on the roof of the terminal, from which you can watch the activities of the port and the coastal area. There is also a children’s playground, exercise equipment and a restaurant.
History and description of the promenade
The promenade of the Tallinn port cruise terminal was opened in 2021. Thanks to this the citizens and guests of the Estonian capital can now access previously closed coastal areas. Admission to the promenade is free for all.
The rooftop promenade at Vanasadam harbor connects the shoreline of Tallinn with the Cultural Kilometer. The length of the pedestrian zone is 850 meters. Throughout the promenade are installed benches. It is also possible to admire the sea and the sunset from the steps above the roof of the restaurant.
It is also worth mentioning that the Cruise Terminal received the award for the Best Estonian Concrete Building 2021. Authors of the project: Maarja Kask, Ralf Lõoke, Ragnar Põllukivi, Marja Viltrop, Margus Tamm (Salto AB) and Villem Tomiste (Stuudio Tallinn OÜ). Incidentally, this coastal area has been closed to citizens for over a hundred years!
Near the Cruise Terminal of the Port of Tallinn there is a paid parking lot. The conditions and prices can be found out on site. The nearest city parking zone is near the Tallinn City Hall. The rules and prices of parking in Tallinn apply here, where you can park for free on Sundays.
