Your typical neighbor: as 80% of the people living in Pirita are Estonians, you hardly hear any other language around. But as a second language, English is here widely spoken as elsewhere in Estonia.
Why Pirita? Endless white sand beaches, pine forests, good connection to the city center and not so heavily populated as the outlying districts. Second best after Nõmme if you are looking for a quiet neighborhood.
History brief: similarly to Nõmme, the area had only few villages before the 20th century. The building intensified in the 1950s as people recovered from the war and started building private residences, small in scale but cute and cozy. Today it features some of the modern gems of villa architecture.
Key center: The Pirita marina and the Tallinn TV tower.
Special events: yachting, kayaking and surfing events take place from May until September.
