Get naked and hop in
Why locals love it
Seriously, Estonians love sauna. The Kalma is the oldest public sauna in Tallinn, operating since 1928 and maintaining its real deal image with wood heating. It has public baths for both men and women (entrance €6.50-€8 for the ladies and €8-€9 for men) so get naked and hop in!
Why you should visit it
To a normal person, sitting naked in a small room with a temperature of 90°C might seem a bit like suicide. Estonians would call that “frosty”. As an added bonus, the Kalma sauna is located in Kalamaja, a historic neighbourhood characterised by unique wooden houses, making it an ideal place for an afternoon stroll.
If you truly want to do it like the locals and whack each other with wet birch bunches you can rent a private one for an hourly rate.
