Assignment in Tallinn

Today I would like to discuss Tallinn in Estonia. If you were to be sent to Tallinn on an expatriate assignment or if you were to relocate there, you are likely to experience weather that is maritime with wet, moderate winters and cool summers. You will meet people who speak Estonian and Russian.

The cost of clothing and food and beverages is very high. The cost of housing is low. The cost of transport is average. Tallinn is the capital and largest city of Estonia. The most important economic sectors of Tallinn are the light, textile, and food industry, as well as the service and government sector. Tallinn also has a well developed information technology sector In addition to a seaport.

From a day to day comfort perspective, you are likely to experience extreme hardship. Be sure to negotiate an appropriate salary or allowance to compensate for the cost of living. If you live in Tallinn or if you lived there recently, let us know what your experience has been. Would you live in Tallinn again?
