Great to see

A really quaint part of the Old Town with local artists sketching and craft stalls. Well worth seeing as there is such a nice atmosphere.

Several local artists display their work along this wall that is on the way up to Toompea Hill. Usually, there are some good buys here.

For E3 pp you are able to climb a spiralling metal stairway and gain access to the top of the city wall to gain an idea of possibly what the cities fortifications looked like in the Middle Ages - well worth the effort and $

Many towers along its path are present and in fact some of them are relatively new. It is a UNESCO world heritage site. It... More

We walked around as much of the entire outside of the wall and then tried to make it around the entire inside. Inside was much harder, as there were so many crooked streets and distractions. Truly an amazing intact Medieval town.

This was a nice stroll over the Christmas period, was cold, was fresh, was a little bit of snow, was nice to pass some time and have a little walk to see what Tallinn center had to offer

Just inside the old cit's gates you can see these perfect and well-preserved walls. A high wall really lovely and quaint, and can walk near it to admire it up close. Some remote turret still in excellent state of conservation. Really a great medieval sight.

We went up here early in the morning. Turn R at the top for the best views. Cold, but well worth it.
