The sixth annual Maritime Days take place this weekend, from July 12-14, with a host of free, sea-inspired events and concerts for the whole family held at three Tallinn harbors.

The festival starts with a bang as the Krusenstern arrives at the Seaplane Harbor on Friday morning, ahead of a battle in the evening between five historical ships on the Bay of Tallinn.

Over 30, mostly free musical performances will be held at the harbors, including headliners Siiri Sisask and the national youth symphony orchestra, British harp-guitarist Jason Carter, Liis Lemsalu, and Lenna Kuurmaa with Mihkel Raud.

Guests can enjoy boat rides between the Passenger Port and the Seaplane Harbor, watch a three-day sailboat race, and try out sailing for themselves.

The festival will also feature seaside cafes, a fish market, handicraft, shipbuilders and events held by other museums, including the children's museum. There will be plenty of other activities for children as well, such as a circus school, trampolines and origami workshops.
