This street known in English as long street is a wonderful introduction to Tallinn. It has museums ,cafes and tourist shops in equal measure. Wander down and you will start to understand the alure of Tallinn itself.

Quaint and quiet streets like this are gradually vanishing throughout Europe. Behind every bit of craftsmanship in every building there is a story and history if you only have the time to talk to the friendly Estonians.

The Long Street (Pikk tanav) is one of the most interesting streets in the Old Town. There are many both historical but also really interesting house, some with amazing design. If you like taking pictures of details - then it will take you hours to pass here.

The most wonderful and amazing street in the old Center of Tallinn. Just a few steps from the main square you find everything you need in just one very special street. Starting with one of the medieval gates to the old town, you step into a different world!

Here you can visit the oldest cafe of the country, drink a beer in a brewery, pass by some embassies, look at some authentic Estonian art in a gallery, buy a souvenir in one of the many shops, enjoy food from Estonia, Russia, India, China or the USA in one of the many restaurants, learn something in a museum, climb a church which was once the highest building of Europe, buy a renovated luxurious apartment in the former KGB headquarters of Estonia, sleep in one of the most special hotels or the simplest hostel, or you can just walk through this street and amaze yourself as you discover something new in this historic place.

Highly recommended and definitely a must to visit when you are in Tallinn!!

We walked up and down Pikk Street several times during our stay in Tallin last summer. Not far from the Town Hall Square you can find Pikk street and walk towards the city wall facing the harbour. It just seemed much quieter and relaxed here with many fewer tourists. We enjoyed the quietness of this area, thus resulting in several strolls here.

We recommend a walk up Pikk street when you are ready for a quite evening stroll in Tallin. There were a few restaurants and cafes to choose from as you approached the centre are of the city centre as well.

This is a great place to take a walking tour, or just wander around drinking in all of the old world charm. One of the most pleasant streets in town, stop and have a coffee at a cafe.

Pikk Street also known as Long Street is a graceful boulevard that runs from the heart of Old Tallinn to the city wall at the Coastal Gates. The street is lined with just about anything you can imagine. In addition to numerous restaurants, there are several museums, KGB and Vene just to name two. There are shops and other points of interest including The House of the Blackheads and St. Olav Church (just one block off). There are also green areas. The street is great for strolling as well. This is a great cross section of Old Town Tallinn. It is also access to the Port of Tallinn.

Pleasent walk in Gothic area of the town, across from the port. Only downside is the height of the pavements, not so good if you use a stick, or have aged knees.

Think of Long Street (Pikk tanav) as a medieval equivalent to NY’s Broadway. Beginning a block from Old Town Square, it passes through Old City Wall on the way to the harbor. I had been walking on Pikk Tanav for twenty minutes, looking for Long Street. Still couldn’t find it! I stopped for a beer (medicinal purposes, for my aching feet☺), and asked the server where was Long Street. He replied, “Yes.” I later learned he thought I had asked if that was Long Street. The only visible sign is simply “Pikk” and tourists looking for a sign designating it as Long Street will never find that sign. There are several hotels and hostels, and enough restaurants to satisfy anyone’s cravings. Medieval buildings (some eight centuries old) line the cobblestone street, and most have been converted to shops and restaurants. Peek into any of them and you’re sure to see exposed rock walls built centuries before. This is the quintessential street when visiting Tallinn's Old Town.

Pikk St is one of those places where the buildings and the facades take centre stage. Look up at the tops of the buildings to see some of the better styles you don't always get at eyelevel.
