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.

Cobblestone streets, buildings from the 1100's. An upper town where the wealthy lived and a lower town where regular people lived and worked. Many guild buildings. Restaurants are varied.

Full of romantic towers, cozy nooks and crannies, hundreds of local arts and craft shops and cafés. The cobblestone streets are difficult underfoot but that adds to the attraction of the place but there's so much to do within the 1 square kilometre old town. Castles, museums, churches of various denominations. Fantastic views from the top of the hill. 5 cruise ships were in the say we visited so the old twin was packed. Easy to spend a couple of hours wandering around

We rented an appartment in the Old Town of Tallinn, and acutally stayed in this area the whole weekend. It has everything, unless you're looking for H&M, Cubus and that sort of shopping. But if you are looking for historic glimpses from the past, cosy restaurants, a relaxing atmosphere and beautiful buildings,-this is where you should go!

We took the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn. In 2 hours, we arrived to a town with so much to offer. Lots of cobblestone pedestrian street, artsy shops, and many good restaurants. People were very nice and helpful, and spoke mostly English. Altho the websites warned about pick-pocketers, we never experienced a moment of concern. Watch out for the numerous shops selling baltic amber, some may be questionable. Linen and wool clothing appears to be their specialty. Excellent day trip. Liked it so much, we would definitely go back to spend more time in Old Tallinn.
