This adventurous cycling trip will take you to multifaced North Tallinn to explore two of Tallinn´s most exciting peninsulas – Paljassaare and Kopli! Cycle from the Patarei Prison to Peter the Great´s Naval Fortress and around mysterious Kopli, accompanied by contrasting views.

Cycling will start from the Patarei Prison, which was built as Peter the Great´s Naval Fortress. From here you will continue to the Seaplane Harbour area. This is home to the 20th century hangers, which are the world’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size and elegant.

Neighboring the unique Seaplane hangers is the trendy Noblessner Quarter, now filled with cafés, cool-looking apartment buildings, was once an important submarine shipyard of Imperial Russia.

We will then continue to Paljasaare Nature Conservation Area to enjoy magnificent views of the reedbed, meadows and the sea. The scenic area is also closely related to our military heritage, until 1991 Paljassaare was held under military purpose, closed for civilians.

Next destination will be the industrial area to Kopli. We will visit the Kopli lines, former miniature village for the working class employees of a big shipyard. After the shipyard was closed, this area was abandoned for years, now we will see what it looks like today. We will enter the fascinating premises of the Põhjala factory, an old rubber factory, now turned into a community center for creative minds. After touring in Kopli we will turn our bikes to the small streets of Kalamaja to admire the colorful wooden houses of former fishermen and fishmongers before we end the tour at Patarei prison.
