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.

Visited Tallinn as part of a tour group. Unfortunately, trying to cram everything into a half day visit only allows you to scratch the surface.
This is such a historic and beautiful city with stunning views of the Old Town, especially from viewing platforms in the upper town. Time was against us so we didn't get a chance to wander through much of the Old Town.
Well worth s repeat visit.

The Talinn old city is just fantastic. An absolute must see!! Make sure you have at least a couple of days to walk every street.

This is the kind of town you want to get lost. Beautifull buildings, charming streets, lots of places to eat and drink.

The town strikes me as something in-between a family choice and nightlife city. The streets are filled to the brim with tourists during the day, but in the afternoon they vanish, making room for the nightlife.

Old city is certainly worth a visit, but be awate that iT is very turistic and busy. Take a walk to the higher part with the parliament for Nice views. I would not suggest a longer stay them just one day for Tallinn

After taking the boat from Helsinki we reached Old Town Tallin. It is definitely a nice day trip. It is a quaint little town with old world character. There are some lovely old buildings and a pretty square. It was nice to have a coffee in the square and just enjoy being in a unique place. You really only need about 2 hours to wander around.
