Tallinn tourism industry suffers from British party tourists
The mayor of Estonian capital, Tallinn, Arvo Sarapuu is asking government to allow him to set restrictions on the opening and closing hours of city’s entertainment venues: bars and night clubs.
Tallinn has long became notorious as a paradise for British youth coming for stag and hen parties. Youngsters party hard, make lots of noise and even violate law and the city that is listed as a UNESCO heritage don’t want this kind of reputation. Besides, situation has become intolerable for residents of Tallinn’s Old Town. It harms businesses, like hotels, who’s clients suffer from noise.
Arvo Sarapuu claims that the number of police calls in central Tallinn surges after the 3 a.m., so this would be an appropriate time for closing the drinking venues. This project has not yet been approved, but it has good chances to come to life.
