“Central.”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

After our Ho Ho tour we walked through the viru square as it was snowing hard, we bought some hot chocolate from the MacDonald`s for the road and headed to town centre passing many nice shops.

“Centre of everything”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I guess 99% of tourists goes to Old Town, if they are visiting Tallinn and 99% of those are going to Viru Square area. Especially summertime full of people, so this is basically centre of everything. Beautiful old buildings, cobble streets and little shops. And don't forget all those bars and restaurants. Must visit in Tallinn!

“Great”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Nice entrance to the Old City Center, where you can take some great photos and buy some flowers for your other half. It is one of the things that best define Tallinn architecture. Can't and shouldn't miss it.

A nice square, not to miss as everything is closeby within the old town of Tallinn. The flower stands are beautiful

“Very Pretty”
Reviewed 7 September 2013 via mobile

This is a very pretty and colorful square with lots of flower stalls and other kinds of little shops. The flowers seem to be very reasonably priced compared to other things I saw. There are 2 towers which lead into old town that are very picturesque. It doesn't take very long to see it unless you want to visit some of the shops. We walked there a couple of times on our 3 day visit to Tallinn and it always seems to be quite busy. If you are going to visit the KGB Museum from old town you just need to follow Viru Street out of old town and you will end up at Viru Square. The Viru Hotel is at the end after you cross the Main Street.
