“Interesting when just yourself”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This I a haunting street that I encountered in the late afternoon when nobody was there, even the painting sellers had packed up. Worth detouring your walk through.

“A Must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

You must walk this street if you go to Old Town here in Tallinn. It is a great place to buy some local art at reasonable prices and you can even watch the artists at work. This makes the best souvenirs as many are painting scenes of Old Town. It is also the way to a wonderful overlook with the best views of Old Town all the way to the sea.

“A healthy way to sight-see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Gives a good medieval feel, especially when passing through the gates, with the high walls on one side and cobbled road underfoot, especially in the snow and/or at night. Worth trying the steps on the 'Short Boot' too.

“Long Leg, not Boot!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

There are two streets in Tallinn, Long Leg and Short Leg, which meet up at Toompea Hill. Long Leg is quite a climb, but there are usually plenty of artists selling thir work so you can just stop and catch your breath. Short Leg is actually more picturesque, with nice shops next to it.

“Typical cobblestone street going up Toompea Hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2011

This little cobblestone street heading up Toompea Hill is very nice. We enjoyed the artists with their work displayed on the wall for viewing, while passing by. We also enjoyed the quaint little archway that allowed entrance to Pikk Jalg prior to strolling up this narrow alley street.

When you head up to the hill, make sure to use this street as your means of approach or at least on the way back down, it is very nice.
