House of the Blackheads (also known as House of the Brotherhood of Black Heads) : Pikk str 26, 10133 Tallinn, Estonia.
Events not open to the public (also taking place at the House of the Blackheads):
By public transport: from the airport you can take bus no. 2 bound for City centre / Reisisadam until A. Laikmaa (6th stop) and then either walk to the venue, or take tram no. 1 or 2 from Hobujaama to Linnahall (2 stops) and then walk to the venue. Either way you have to do some walking, as the venue is situated within the Old Town area and there is no public transport available there. Be careful with high heels as the old town is paved with cobblestones (there are sidewalks of course but still the ground might be slightly uneven).
By car: the attached route would be the best, but please note that there is no parking available at the venue, and the closest parking is a couple of minutes away. You could look for parking either at Parkimine or Europark.
By taxi: you could take a taxi (e.g Takso 24 - call 1224 or +372 6 408 927 from abroad) - or use an app (Taxofon or Taxify) to call one.

Founded in 1248, Tallinn is the capital of Republic of Estonia. It is situated in the northeast corner of the Baltic Sea Region, and is one of the oldest capital cities of Northern Europe. Tallinn's Old Town is one of the best preserved and intact medieval cities in Europe and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city was known as Reval from the 13th century until 1918 and again during the Nazi occupation of Estonia from 1941 to 1944. Tallinn is the major political, financial, cultural and educational centre of Estonia. Often dubbed as the Silicon Valley of Europe, it has the highest number of startups per capita in Europe and is the birthplace of many international companies including Skype.
