I was in Tallinn for the second time and I visited the Town Wall again. The guide told us many interesting facts about the Town Wall.

Makes a nice atmosphere. You meet it in several different ways at your walk - at daytime or in evening atmosphere - in the old town. In december some parts could unfortunately not be visited.

One of the best preserved medieval walls in Europe. Amazing to walk around and discover every small corner of the Old Town.
