Overview

in 2016. Rahva Raamat in Viru Keskus was nominated as one of four best bookstores in the world by the London Book Fair. It is the largest bookstore in Estonia with kilometers of bookshelves boasting over two floors. It offers plenty of cozy nooks to sit down and discover new and exciting literature. It also has the largest selection of English and Russian literature in Estonia. Rahva Raamat is also an excellent place for meeting people and getting together with friends in its famous cafes: Cafe Gustav on the third and French-style More on the fourth floor. There is also a place for children's activities.

As well as selling a good selection of English, Russian books and, of course, Latvian books, there are lots of quirky gifts, stationery heaven as well as a nice cafe. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon.

One of the best book stores in Europe. A must see and it's so nice that you don't want to leave. Besides that there's excellent selection of books and great prices.
