Wonderful to wander the old town and soak up the atmosphere. The buildings are fascinating and the view from in the higher section is worth the climb

Tallinn’s old town retains its authentic rustic charm, free from the trappings of a high street and modern brands and luxury shops. Coffee shops, bars and restaurants dot around the market square and the surrounding cobbled streets. The walk up through the old city walls...More

Tallinn is spectacular Medieval city. Tallinn and Rīga are quite different, but both are special. As a Latvian myself, it's hard to say which city I like better. If you like mostly history and historical buildings, Tallinn is a must see.

This is the main attraction of Tallinn - although there's plenty else to see - and it is very pretty and full of character. It's easy to spend a full day exploring all the streets.

I'm sorry to be sooo late in my reply. I have been incredibly busy and only now logged back into TA. I really wish they'd send an email when people ask questions about posts. We were only in Tallinn one day.
