Fascinating preservation of a centuries old wall . I guess they really built well in those days. It seems that 40-50 year old public works these days just fall apart

the old wall of Tallinn is preserved over large portions of the city. more than half of the wall and the towers are still remaining. Most of the gates have disappeared however. Nevertheless, the multitude of ancient buildings, the small cobbled streets and squares combined with the wall give this city a medieval appearance that is not matched by any... More

Nice display of paintings with the artist sat opposite. When we were there we could hear the music from a busker playing the violin which was really nice and made the experience better. Not great but worthwhile seeing if you are walking past.

The wall is built around Tallin, its really picturesque and definitely worth a look! If you follow it around as far as possible it should bring you out into the busier parts of Old Town! Definitely recommend!

This is something that every old town has, a painter and some paintings. Of course the paintings are rather good and interesting to see, but at the same time, you are probably just wishing to walk up the hill, so you will not think about it again.

Now on the outside of the wall you will find all sorts of vendors, arts and crafts, etc. it is a beautiful area and a joy... More

The long town wall is a must see attraction in and around old town. But don't worry, you cannot completely miss it. You will see it at the viewing platform, going to the lower city, entering the old town riding a buss near the port. You can (depending on the spot) dine on top of the wall, walk 200m and... More

Tallinn has one of the prettiest old town centers I've ever seen. Of course it' s all commercialised now, but it's a real " must see". The town wall is just one of the highlights. Bring good shoe's - it's all cobble stones.
