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.

Happy people, preserved medieval architecture and good prices make the center of Tallinn one of the nicest places in the world.

Lovely quaint experience-relaxing short break full of history. A mini bus tour and guided visit to the old town was worth the 20 euros each.Using the Tallinn card is a great way to manage your time giving access to transport/museums/restaurants etc.Our hotel had them-24 euros per 24 hours[nor per day]

“Full of history and coziness”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

The must-see in Tallinn. Much of the city are intact from the middle age and thereafter. Most restaurants interior are based on the historical buildings which gives it a nice atmosphere.

“Romantic getaway”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Tallinn Old Town, also known as "small Prague", is a perfect place for romantic weekend or a station to visit nearby cities and attractions.

Make sure you do your own planning and avoid typical tourist traps (eg. overhyped restaurants such as Olde Hansa).

For accommodation check out AIrBnb. Lots of nice offers.

“Step back in time”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

Absolutely brilliant!!!! You feel like you've stepped back in time. The old town is just oozing with ambiance. There is no shortage of things to see and do here. You could spend hours and hours just walking through town admiring all the architecture and making pit-stops at all the lovely cafes and bars. This city is steeped in history and a must see. We visited specifically for the Christmas market and it was absolutely lovely. Lots of stalls and some great "street food" and drink.
