What do I need to know about living in Tallinn?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Tallinn, they said:

"Before retiring in Tallinn, expats should familiarize themselves with the local language, Estonian, as it is the official language of the country. Expats should also research the cost of living in Tallinn, as it is generally higher than other parts of the country. Additionally, expats should research the healthcare system in Estonia, as it is different from other countries. Finally, expats should research the visa requirements for living in Estonia, as they may need to apply for a residence permit," said one expat who made the move to Tallinn.
