“Great view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The view is amazing, we went there in the day time and at night. There are few view points surrounding, each of them have different view, but absolutely worth to go. In fact, i will say this is one of the highlights in Taillin

“Heart of old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you like medieval buildings and a little history this is the place. Plenty of nooks and crannies and reasonable entrance fees (or none).

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Quite windy and cold in November but most of Tallinn is! Great views over the town looking over the red tiled roofs. Must be great in the warm.
