Get in some work hours at one of the numerous coworking spaces during the day and enjoy the sites during the evenings. Spend your weekends traveling to other coastal cities located along the Baltic. Cities such as St. Petersburg, Riga, and Gdansk are easily accessible by car, rail, or boat and are ready to be explored.
But before we start drooling over the many things to do and the delicious Kissell and Kama desserts to enjoy on our adventures, you probably want to check out some of the best coworking spaces in Tallinn. After all, if we work hard, we can play hard.
