28th January 2017. Well worth a stroll down this street filled with massive ancient buildings. Do look up and admire the tops of the buildings - so much variety. The old KGB HQ is at the end of this street, near the Fat Margaret Tower.

This street has everything from a 16th century cannon tower to a Victorian-era cafe selling freshly prepared marzipan. There is so much history down this street, from medieval gothic houses up to the KGB headquarters. It took us a good hour and a half to see everything, The stone carvings in particular are well worth a look.

It is a very pleasant way to the Toompea Hill. Looks old and authentic. But it is not really long, maybe longer than other streets around.

In general Tallinn old town streets are beautiful and this is one of the best streets in the old town. If in Tallinn don't miss this street.

Taking you from one end of medieval Tallinn to the other, Pikk tanav is a long cobble stone street. If you're headed to Tallinn wear sensible shoes and you will be highly EWARDED.

While getting acquainted with Tallin panorama from the Toompea hill lookouts, this street you should take when descending to Old town. It stretches all the way from Toompea, crossing almost the entire Old town up to the northern Fat Margaret gate. A lot of nice buildings in different styles to be seen, cute restaurants, cafes and shops.

This narrow, cobblestone street is filled with character. If you are an architecture buff you will enjoy this part of Tallinn.
