Owner description: This jumble of 14th- and 15th-century architecture with its medieval walls, needling spires and twisting, cobblestone streets is also the site of many of the city's important historic attractions and museums including the House of the Brotherhood of the Blackheads, St. Catherine's Guild and the 15th-century Guildhall that now houses the History Museum.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

I've never been anywhere with so much of an old town still standing - houses inhabited for 700 years continuously for example. Great to walk around, beautiful in the snow, helpful local knowledge (eg had to buy snow boots and shopkeepers told us where to get small sizes from), amazing craft shops though so many of them! Much of the original walls still standing -worth a visit for the views.

“Beautiful and atmospheric”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

The Old Town of Tallinn is compact and beautiful. It is more rustic than some of the other old towns in Eastern Europe, but this gives it a particularly appealing character. There are some wonderful places to eat and stay, and some interesting day trips to be had. Highly recommended for a short break

“Wander through time”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

The streets just invite you to meander through and go back in time. Lovely buildings and many needing repair but plenty of work going on to concerve them, facinating city

“Nice place”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The old town is lovely and very medieval in parts and was lovely to walk around the old streets with little shops and bars/restaurants. However once you have done it a few times in one day, its done and there isn't really much else to see. Go in the spring or summer when there are more people about
