    ***

    Põhjala has an awesome community where the future is in progress and history is being written.

    Each studio, atelier, plant box in the city garden and volunteer supports the fragile ecosystem of the factory. We enjoy the time spent together, in co-creation, co-working and get-togethers that last ’till the morning light.

    Hangar concerts, garden beds full of kale, vegan leather bags and so much more have found a home in here. The wild bushy garden bar surrounding the old tower was born from inspiration and has become an inspiration as well. Everything done in here is done after the face of the factory.

    GREEN WEALTH

    Põhjala allows the urban jungle to flourish, city chicken to fuss around and the buildings to age with dignity. Põhjala revives the old rubber noot factory, keeping its authenticity and atmosphere. Walk by our side and come for a visit by bicycle or tram!

    TOMORROW

    Those who walk here along the seaside promenade find themselves in modern Bullerby village, where everything they need is within reach. Children are enjoying themselves in the car-free courtyard, the baker reads your today’s desire with just a glance.

    TODAY’S HUSTLE AND BUSTLE

    The factory is a place where everyone can fit in. Construction goes hand in hand with concerts and shows, stand up shows with markets and festivals. Those rushing to Botik meet with the muddy urban gardeners, lovers are snuggling around the corner.

Tallinn is also home to many sustainable tourism attractions, such as museums and cultural sites that are carefully managed to minimize environmental impact.
