Your best bet is English, since to a first approximation, everybody you're likely to encounter in Estonia speaks English. Fluency in Finnish is fairly low and declining, especially among the post-1990 generation who grew up watching English media, not Finnish TV. While the languages are closely related, the pronunciation and vocabulary is sufficiently ...
As can be seen from Wikipedia, the legality even in European countries varies greatly from country to country. In Latvia, Estonia's neighbour, for example, pepper spray in canisters is classified as a self-defense device and can be bought and carried by anyone over 16 years of age. Pepper spray handguns can be bought and carried without any license by ...
There are tunnels. While some are the casemates or part of the old fortress, many others have been found, dating back centuries. http://www.inyourpocket.com/estonia/tallinn/Tunnels-under-Tallinn_70029f?more=1 has a good summary of what exists, what's theoretically accessible, and what's actually accessible to the public.
The festival grounds (Lauluväljak) is a bit out of the way but not very far (a little over 3km east of the old city). There are several bus lines going past the festival grounds, including 1A, 8 and 34A from Virus Keskus and line 5 which goes through the old city, each with 2 to 4 buses per hour on Sunday. Some lines go to the Oru stop on the other side of ...
I've travelled from Germany to Mexico (via Atlanta) and Australia (via HongKong) with pepper spray in checked luggage without any problems. The TSA regulations say: Self Defense Sprays - One 4 ounce (118ml) container of mace or pepper spray is permitted in checked baggage provided it is equipped with a safety mechanism to prevent accidental ...

I believe that it is the Independence Victory Column. It was built to celebrate the successful war(s) of independence of the Baltic states and Poland in 1918-1920. Or maybe you mean the Maarjamaae War Monument on Pirita Beach. This was a World War II memorial.
Are you talking about this one? It's called Russalka Memorial.
There are multiple options available without the long layover from SkyScanner and Rome2Rio and those with long layovers in Moscow or Munich. But I am sure that you can find something with a stopovers at other places St. Petersburg, Russia and then just take a train from there.

Indeed Estonia has very few directs flights from anywhere and the situation has gone worse over the last couple of years. But there are a few alternatives which can make everything more fun, if you have time to travel. Fly to Riga, enjoy this great city for a day or two, take a bus to Tallinn. The trip takes about 4 hours and costs between 13 and 30€, see ...
I could be wrong on this account but I think that the only document that will allow you to carry pepper spray into a plane might be international law enforcement credentials. Save that it will most likely to be confiscated during check-in. Especially so in Israel. Your best bet if you want to have it while you are in the country is to buy one locally.
Within Viru Square, I would arrange to meet at the (Viru) Gate, which is the entrance to the Old Town.
Pepper Spray is prohibited in several countries, for example Singapore. Reason why is that Pepper Spray not only can be used for self defense, but also to help committing crime. You should carefully check the law in your country of destination. Alternatively you can start invest some time to learn some self-defense martial art. :)
One afternoon is sufficient to see most, if not all, of the Old Town, which is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. As an alternative, in case of bad weather, or as a complement, in case you are rushing too fast through the Old Town, you can consider a visit to the Museum of Occupations. Interesting, instructive and easy to reach: ...
Since you're leaving from Tartu and Riga is a viable alternative to the Tallinn airport and a much better option as a flight gateway. According to the flight schedule Air Baltic has at least 6 scheduled daily flights to Oslo/Gardermoen including 1 at 22:00 and one at 23:05, which will suit your schedule nicely. You're right about the buses from Tartu to ...

Of course there is! Hostelbookers currently lists three properties for Parnu. A hostel, a guesthouse and a motel. Surprisingly (they normally overlap), Hostelworld has three different properties - a guesthouse, campsite and hostel. Hopefully some of those appeal, although they don't appear terribly big, so it'd pay to book in advance. Hostelbookers ...
In Canada, many hikers carry bear spray, which is essentially a form of pepper spray to guard against black bears, grizzlies and other animals they may come across. So that's legally permitted here. From the article as well: Bear mace is legal across the USA. It can be purchased even in Hawaii, New York, Massachusetts or Wisconsin, where standard ...
