Everything you need to know before Refresh 2018


Refresh is happening already tomorrow. Here is what you need to know before Refresh 2018:

The venue

Refresh takes place at Tallinn Creative Hub, called Kultuurikatel in Estonian. You can use this name when telling taxi drivers where you want to go.

Tallinn Creative Hub is a multifunctional creative and cultural centre located by the sea in central Tallinn. The building was previously Tallinn City Central Power Station, which began operating in 1913 and closed in 1979 and in 1977 appeared in Andrei Tarkovsky's cult film ‘Stalker’.

It is only a few minutes walking distance from the city center and right next to the port.


How to get there

Arrival by plane - Tallinn Airport (Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport) is close to the city center. Depending on the taxi company used, you can expect to pay between €8 and €10 for a taxi from Tallinn Airport to Tallinn Creative Hub.

Arrival by ferry - The port is in the city center and almost next to the venue. There are direct ferry connections from Tallinn to Helsinki and Stockholm.

Arrival by car – Please note that all the surrounding parking areas are paid ones.

Arrival by public transport - Linnahall stop for city bus number 3 and 73 is right next to the venue, Linnahall stop for tram lines 1 and 2 is just across the street.
