Tere tulemast! Welcome to our expat community in Tallinn, the capital city of Estonia! InterNations is a global community of expats all over the world, offering a variety of resources to help you get to grips with moving to a foreign land. Whether you're plotting a move to Tallinn or have recently arrived in the city, you can use our platform to find the answers to any questions you might have — such as what to expect from Estonian healthcare, how to apply for an ID card, and where to find the best local bars and restaurants. Our community is driven by our members, so why not help out your fellow expats by sharing your own experiences of the city? We have members who have lived many years in Tallinn and others who arrived only recently, so you can be sure of a wide range of useful perspectives, helping you to gain a deeper understanding of the Estonian way of life. A unique fusion of modern and medieval with a strong international flavor and a rapidly developing business sector, Tallinn has a great deal to offer the enterprising and adventurous expat, from a small but thriving local music scene to a sophisticated public transport system with excellent links to the Nordic, Baltic, and former Soviet nations that surround it.
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Singapore or Dubai.

A charming Baltic city that combines ornate churches and historic palaces with sleek, modern shopping malls, bars and nightclubs, Tallinn is a sophisticated and forward-thinking modern economic and cultural hub that punches well above its weight on the world stage. A compelling blend of Baltic, Nordic, and Soviet sensibilities with a distinct personality all of its own, Estonia's capital city reflects the ambition, inventiveness and enterprising spirit that has come to characterize the nation's people. A center for business and investment that offers very reasonable costs and a high standard of living, Tallinn draws many expats to key industries such as IT, communications and software development, plus a tourism and services industry which is growing in line with the country's reputation as one of the true hidden gems of modern Europe.
