A trip to Tallinn
Dec 2020
It was forbidden to visit Tallinn. In December 2020 we managed and went to the Squares. We also made some shopping.

Great Part of Town
Nov 2019
This is the best part of the city for tourists as the old architecture has been preserved and it is full of charm. You will find lots of cafes here, good places to sit and enjoy the scene.

Stunning old town entrance
Jul 2019
You can't miss this in Tallin... the flower stalls outside the wall and the shops and restaurants just inside the gates.
Most people enter theough here, it's always buzzing with people. However the main attraction here is the colourful flower stalls... so pretty

Viru Gate Square
Jun 2019
Viru Square is at the front of the Viru Gates, the famous main entrance to the Tallinn Old Town. It is a great place for shopping, sightseeing and/or having a quick bite.

Attractive Remains of Old Gatehouse Towers
Jun 2019
One of my favorite parts of the Old Town - I always visit it when I'm in Tallinn. It is pretty & leads the Old Town & Town Square in one direction & the 'new', modern city where my hotels often are. And Pikk Tänav branches off from here, leading to Fat Margaret & the coastal gate.

Lovely end to City Tour
Oct 2019 • Couples
We ended our self guided city tour in the Square and it was beautiful. The flower sellers set off the Square and city gates.

A lovely place to mingle and people watch.

Tallinn old town is just wonderful
Jun 2019
Tallinn captured my heart since my first visit in 1998, the old town is one of a kind, you start there at the entry at Viru squarelike you are back at least 500 years in history
