Next to the gates is Viru Square, a pretty area with lots of small vendors selling flowers and hand crafted gifts. Gets seedier the further away from the gates but a good place to see

one of my favourite spots in the city centre of Tallinn, bursting with great pubs, each one has an outdoor sitting area, perfect in the summer to enjoy the weather and the buzz of the square!

In the middle of s storybook like setting in Tallinn's old town is Viru Square. It is home to a bustling open air market. There is fun shopping and it is surrounded by cafes and restaurants.

Very quaint town. Very interesting old town and very easy walking tour. Doing it alone with a friend sure beats the tours organized by the cruise company. Ate elk soup for lunch and shopped till we dropped. Casually walked back to the cruise ship on our own time. the most relaxing time of all. We travelled on the Royal Caribbean... More

I enjoyed mostly the flower shop at the entrance of square. There was colorfull flowers and to watch them was so lovely. The streets are narrow but little, cute place to visit it. City is not expensive , you can sit somewhere and can drink something.

Surprising City in many ways, it seemed to us at the time to be a city and country that was glad to see the back of the USSR. Very friendly
