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.

Amazing city, full of beautiful houses and churches. The town hall needs to be visited as well. And, if you like, you can rent a bike ad have a ride through the beautiful city parks.

It is rare to get the opportunity to walk around a Mideivil City that helps you imagine what life was like hundreds of years ago. There are so many special places to visit and it is a pleasure just to walk around the cobblestones streets.

I would assume if you are going to Tallinn, you are going to old town. Why would you skip it?? Its an awesome, old, eastern european capitol with so much character. You can easily spend a day or more walking around and exploring.

Old town has all the charm of the medieval city, very well kept with many restaurants and shops around, the main plaza is a great spot to sip a beer at any of the terraces. beware tons of tourists groups from the cruiseships!
