The town wall is like a silent security guard of the city. Very majestic and romantic at the same time. The most I prefer the place where several artists have put their paintings.

A very interesting piece of the past history of Tallinn. It has an accompanying Museum which I found very informative. It is sited next to a nice green park on one side and the old city with its tourist attractions on the other. Well worth a visit.
