This jumble of 14th- and 15th-century architecture with its medieval walls, needling spires and twisting, cobblestone streets is also the site of many of the city's important historic attractions and museums including the House of the Brotherhood of the Blackheads, St. Catherine's Guild and the 15th-century Guildhall that now houses the History Museum.

This is a great town and square to walk around. Walking distances to shopping and dining. Reminded me of a small German town, people are very nice and the town itself is very chill.

Tallinn is about the equivalent to the uk to eat out, there is a restaurant called Meat and wine that did a really good steak offer and the food was fab. Also Hell Hunt pub is reasonable for beer and very friendly
