Overview

More
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.

We have been to a lot of cities and towns around Europe and we have to say Tallinn is right up there with them especially old town. Gorgeous streets and shops and restaurants. Really friendly people and never too crowded!

Had a day while visiting from a cruise ship. Lots to see in a very interesting part of the world. Architecture, restaurants, people - all interesting. Not sure how they fared in WWII but still plenty of history to see.

Enjoyed watching ice skaters, touring the Winter Market - it was after Christmas, thus, more of the Winter title, though Christmas items were still available! Great to access since most in Germany were closed by the time we got there. Great dining opportunities. Art Galleries...More
