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.

“medieval old town”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

With all ancient buildings, i felt like that i was travelling through time... definitely worth to try the elk soup and elk pie with pickled cucumber at the square. And the store selling mimic glasses and kitchen wares from the medieval time... amazing.

“Saturnday evening walk”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

This area has really nice atmosphere. The area is not that big so you can walk almost every street during one day. There's lot of embassies and churches and you are even allowed to see mass. A lot of restaurants have higher prices due to location, as well are some shops, but it's worth it because of the atmosphere.

“A gem of a city”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

I recently travelled through a few countries in Eastern Europe and Tallinn was my first stop and also my favourite of them all. The city is simply stunning with it's cobbled streets and incredible history not to mention the wonderful architecture which is truly beautiful.

Furthermore the city's best bars and restaurants are mostly located here and there are a few hidden gems if you are willing to explore a little bit.
