Norde Centrum is just a two minute walk away from the Port of Tallinn’s passenger terminal D. It is a small shopping centre with a large RIMI Hypermarket, Sports Direct, off-license, hairdresser, pet store, casino, and a bunch of smaller shops. There’s also a restaurant, but our previous eating experiences there have been far from good; the quality of food is below average, prices are high, and service is bad.
The location of Norde Centrum is ideal for cruise passengers, as here you can do some last minute shopping before heading back to your ship. However, if you want to do some serious spending, then it’s better to head off to Tallinn city centre. Here is where you can find shopping centres such as Viru Keskus, Rotermann City, and Solaris. They are only a 10-15 minute walk from terminal D. In case you have a bit more extra time, then you can head to the bigger shopping malls like Kristiine Keskus, Ülemiste Keskus, or Rocca Al Mare. By the way, there’s a free Prisma bus service operating between terminal D, Rocca Al Mare, and Kristiine Keskus. The harbor area isn’t the best spot for shopping, but if you have to choose one from Norde Centrum, Merekeskus, and SadaMarket, then you should take the first one. Merekeskus and SadaMarket sell fake clothing and other stuff that you don’t really need.
Norde Centrum’s opening hours:
