“The most romantic part”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

Wonderful old buildings, great view over Tallinn, nice narrow streets, few cars.
Not so easy to walk because of the paving-stones

“A peaceful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

There is a lovely atmosphere up at Toompea Hill. Walk up the 'long leg' and then return down 'short leg'. The views from different places are magnificent and better than any that you pay for in the Old Town (towers). Try the Bogapott quirky cafe for a drink bfore leaving.

“Magical Tallinn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Pleasant walk along the winding streets with stops along the way. Good souvenir shops and nice outdoor cafe at the top of Toompea Hill. Rewards were stunning views at sunset of the city.

I loved the walk up the steep stairway and getting out unto the sunny plaza where the sight of awesome buildings was sudden. Great viewpoints over Tallinn.

“Very relaxed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Not busy and in good condition. Cobbles need care but fine in sensible shoes. Buildings in excellent repair or work being done on them.
