Flower street Tallinn

Hi there, if you don`t like flowers I would recommend you to skip this one. I visited the iconic flower street in Tallinn and this post is more than full of colorful pictures from there.  I absolutely love flowers and I think I have learn this from my mother, who is absolutely amazing with fresh flowers, plants and gardening. And actually my grandmother is also, so I believe that the love for flowers run in the family.

In Tallinn before entering to the Old town from the gate of Viru street, you can spot the amazing colorful stands stacked with fresh flowers. The small flowers “shops” are open from early morning to the late evening year around. From the flower street you can find everything from classical red roses to the seasons most beautiful flowers and hand made bouquet arrangements. And the prices compered to Finland are cheap!

I have bought from this street flowers to take with me back home, and to bring as a gift when visiting family members in Tallinn. The selection is breath taking and somehow when walking in the flower street it almost feels like time stops and all you see are these beautiful flowers and the amazing (how many time I have used this word already today, haha) colors. I would say that it is worth the visit even if you don`t want to buy flowers, as something this beautiful is never a bad idea.

Sunflowers are in the season, so you can spot these huge yellow beauties from almost every stand in the street. Last I visited the flower street beginning of last month, when example peonies were in season, so of course there  were more those then. And like said, the prices are very competitive, as example peonies were around 6€ a piece in Finland, when they were same time in Tallinn 2-4 € piece.

I always think about my grandfather when I see Gladiolus – they were his favorite flowers.
