Tallinn Card to become more expensive in 2016 ({{commentsTotal}})

The tourist-oriented Tallinn Card that offers free entry to Tallinn's best attractions, museums and tours, as well as free use of the city's public transport network, will become slightly more expensive next year to keep up with increasing costs.

The prices for 24, 48 and 72 hour tickets will increase from one to three euros (3.2 to 10.5 percent).

The Tallinn City Government decided to raise the prices to cover the rising costs of the services that the card offers. For example, the entry fee for the Seaplane Harbor has gone up 40 percent, the Estonian Health Museum is now a third more expensive, and large number of other museums have also increased prices by 20-25 percent.

From January 1, a 24-hour Tallinn Card will cost 32 euros (concession: 16 euros), a 48-hour card 42 euros (concession: 21 euros) and a 72-hour card 52 euros (concession: 26 euros).
