Directions

For the first – The map

The easiest way to ‘Kohver’ is to find the entrance to the Old town called Viru Gates (two old gate towers, a small flower market, Mc Donald`s at the corner).

From there walk along Viru Street and take the third turn left – Sauna Street (Karu baar and Helsinki something on the corner). Walk up the Sauna Street almost to the end (it’s a short one).

At the corner of Sauna St and Vaike Karja St on your right you will see a high yellow building. This is the house you need.

Stay on Sauna Street, find the red door just to the right of the ‘Paar veini’ wine bar in front of ‘FRANK’ restaurant. Ring the door bell. You will find „Kohver“ on the top 3rd floor.

From the bus station

Take the a city bus number 17 or 23 to the ‘Estonia’ stop. You will see a big yellow theatre building in front of you. Just go that direction and cross the street at the traffic light. Walk trough the small park on the right from the theatre with a monument in it. Cross the street again. Now you are on Viru Street with the small flower market on the left and two Viru gate towers infront of you. From here get directions given above

From the airport

Take bus number 2 to the ‘A.Laikmaa’ stop at the Viru shopping centre (right in front of you across the street) and just walk to the Old Town from there. When you have hopped out, you can take the way straight through the shopping center or just walk around it. You will see the roofs and towers of the Old town as you reach the other side of the shopping centre on the right. Cross the street at the traffic light. Now you face Viru street,with a small flower market on the left and the two Viru Gate towers in front of you. You are almost there. Follow instructions above.

 From the harbour

Walk from the harbour towards the Old Town (you can see it clearly), then turn left into Mere Street and walk it up till you come to the roundabout. Turn right there. Now you are on Viru Street. From here follow the instructions above.

From the railway station

Walk towards the old town (it is pretty close and you can see it behind and above the park). Cross Toompuiestee Street and walk through the park along Nunne Street, which leads you to the Old town. Walk until until you reach the crossing with Pikk Street (you will see an old gate tower on the right). Then walk up the narrow and short Voorimehe Street to get to the Town Hall square. Cross it. You will see the Old Hansa restaurant and some people in medieval costumes. Ask them for Vaike-Karja Street (they are really helpful and friendly). Walk up Vaike-Karja Street and take the first turn to the left into Sauna Street. You will see a high yellow building on the left. This is the house you need. Stay on Sauna Street, find the red door just to the right of the ‘Paar veini‘ wine bar. Ring the door bell. You will find „Kohver“ on the top floor.

here is the map of how to get there from the bus station by foot (it’s around half-an-hour walk)

You can also check the public trasport directions on the map – tram number 4. ticket is 1,7 euro paid to the driver (don’t even try to pay in big notes ).. but buses are faster.
