New season at Tallinn's ice rinks proves popular

Since opening in mid-November, Tallinn's ice rinks have already welcomed over 20,000 visitors within three weeks. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the winter season at Tallinn's ice rinks – local schools can organize free skating sessions, and seniors have special times set aside for complimentary visits.

Over 9,000 visits have been made to the ice rink in the Old Town. Mustamäe ice rink follows with approximately 5,000 visits, and the Lasnamäe and Nõmme ice rinks have seen 3,600 and 3,400 visits. The number of visits from children, including school groups, has surpassed 12,000.

"The outdoor ice rinks are very popular among the city's residents, and the beautiful winter weather has helped to draw people in, too. It's great to see that the ice parks have become a place where people can enjoy a healthy outdoor activity and embrace the Christmas spirit with family and friends," said Deputy Mayor Vladimir Svet.

Harju ice rink in the Old Town, a favorite spot among both residents and tourists, is celebrating its 18th season this year. The Nõmme rink is situated on the grounds of the Nõmme Gümnaasium school. The Mustamäe rink is set up in Männi Park, and the Lasnamäe ice rink in Tondiraba Park.

School groups are encouraged to pre-register for their visits between Monday and Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm. Entry is free for students during school-organized group visits, and skates can be rented on-site for a fee. Seniors of Tallinn, aged 65 and above, can enjoy free ice skating on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 am to 5 pm. Free special events will be organized on the rinks at least once a month for underprivileged families in Tallinn, and the tradition of celebrating various special occasions will continue.

Skating fees range from 6.30 to 9.50 euros per hour. Discounted rates of 4.20 to 6.30 euros are available for children and seniors. Season passes with unrestricted rink access are also being sold. Visitors can bring their skates or rent them on-site for 4.5 euros.
