    The Old Town was the highlight of Tallinn to us and we visited it twice on our 3 day visit. The clean cobbled streets, the lively crowds, the shops and cafes , souvenir shops and the historical places together make for a wonderful combination that makes this place worth at least 5-6 hours.Hence if you are staying in the city for 2-3 days or more , I recommend making two visits to avoid making it hectic.
    On the first day, we covered primarily the historical places like the city wall, church, museums etc. And the second day , we enjoyed leisurely strolling around and discovering the streets and the beautiful cafes in nooks and corners.

    Newly renovated, this museum is an excellent place to visit on a trip to Tallinn. The museum’s content is quite varied and interesting and the interactive are very good. I especially recommend the AV projection on the submarine. The museum flows very well and is easy to navigate. It was included in the Tallinn city card, and well worth getting this card if you intend to visit the museum, as the museum alone is quite pricey - so for not too much more money you will be able to visit many other attractions over 24 hours.
    It is a fairly long walk to the museum from the city centre (about 15-20mins) but the walk from the museum to the Balti Jaama Turg market is very pleasant, and passes through a very nice residential part of town which was nice to see.

    One climbs way up here to get a good view of the old city and the harbor. It is worth the effort to make the climb if you want to get a sense of how the whole urban area looks. Pretty rooftops.

    The Town Square is like the heart of the Old Town. Surrounded by beautiful al- fresco restaurants on all sides, it has a very picturesque setting.The centre if square has many different types of free seating. In beautiful weather, its fun to just laze around and soak in the ambience. Many streets lead to and from this square. There's an old town hall building too which we didnt visit from inside but it has a very interesting spire.

    We ate lunch just down the street from this traditional cathedral. It is quite impressive and pretty from the outside. It was late in the day and it was not open. Check the signs or online to find the opening times.

    The city walls add character to the old town. Those who love the period era and medieval looks are sure to love the feel. We climbed up he Hellman Tower near the Viru Gate. There's a minor entry fee of 3-2 Euros per person.
    Most of the stairs up are not difficult except for the last leg of stairs that take you to the watch tower. There's a parapet platform that has been created so that we can walk along a small portion of the wall. The watch tower has a nice view of the old town. There are some pictures and information about the old town.
    It was nice enough for a history buff like me but nothing awesome to write home about.

    A visit to this church is a must if you want to see Tallinn and the Old Town with the clearest 360 view. The narrow stone stairs takes you to the tower which offers the best view in the city from what seems to be the tallest building in the city.
    The cost to enter is 5 euros and you need to be prepared to climb the narrow winding stairs. So if your knees or legs are weak then forget it. It's a definite must do.

    Excellent views of the surrounding countryside and the sea with Tallinn in the distance. Excellent indoor views plus glass floor areas dotted about. The floor has activities for young kids as well as a vr experience at an extra cost. Good outside viewing area and small openings to take clear pictures of the views. You can also see the place where, if you are brave enough, you can arrange to walk on the edge in a harness. Not for me! Lovely views of the greenery down below and distant coast line areas.

    Nice cafe and restaurant area here too. Plain and simple but some nice cake treats and coffee. Excellent gift shop with a lot to tempt you. Enjoyed the simple history section on the lower floor too with loads of photos and interesting info on the construction. They also had a stained glass exhibition area. Good staff too.

    Can be reached by hop on and off bus and normal bus. I went via Uber. Not bad price.

    A very pretty large building in the center of the old town. You will find it on a big open square with lots of activity. It is the city hall with official functions, but this building is notable because it is historic.

    It's a good place to visit when going for underground tunnels. Here you can find a good exhibition and how the tunnels evolved during the years.

    The upper wall museum is not worth visiting.
