Port of Tallinn

The Port of Tallinn has signed an agreement with YIT Eesti AS for the construction of new cruise terminal in Tallinn Old City Harbor, according to a statement, at a value of 13.7 million euro.

The new terminal is set to be complete by July 2021 and will include a large three-story building, pedestrian promenade area at the pier, children’s playground and parking spaces.
