At the fair you can taste traditional Christmas dishes. By the way, signs in Russian in the center of everywhere, problems should arise with it. And not only in the Old Town.

something likely to greet you first, or ask the Estonian, but hearing what you say in Russian, will go at it. With me it was in the supermarket, the post office when you buy stamps for postcards home, in a book, and so on. N.
