For a city of Tallinn's size there are an unexpectedly large number of alternatives to choose from. Choose the Old City for souvenirs and antiques. The main shopping streets in the Old City are Viru, Müürivahe, Suur-Karja, Vaike-Karja and Kullassepa. In the centre you will find Tallinn's two largest shopping centres: Kaubamaja (Gonsiori 2) and Stockmann (Liivalaia 53). Stockmann can boast the title of being the largest Baltic department store. When it opened here in the mid nineties, this Finnish department store was ground-breaking: many of the inhabitants of Tallinn had never seen so many products in one place before. Don't miss De la Gardie, (Viru 13-15). Tallinn's trendiest premises in wood, glass and stone accommodate three floors of uncompromising shopping. Opinions of the department store are as follows: either you hate its appearance or you love it. On the other hand, everyone thinks that the boutiques are of a high standard. Another big name is Katariina Käik (between Vene 12 and Müürivahe tänav). In the summer of 1995 the narrow Katarina passage was given a new life. Today it serves as a meeting point for Tallinn's artisans who leave the doors to their workshops ajar. Take a look at the shops and studios with their jewellery, textiles and glasswork.
