Before climbing down from the upper part of the old town to the lower part. The monk sculptures are not old but a nice touch to the wall between upper and lower towns. There are several worthwhile stops on the way down the stairs off of Toompea Hill.

Nice well kept garden with a good view over Tallinn that is perfect for pictures. There are also statues of faceless monks around the garden that were apparently donated by a wealthy local and have no significance whatsoever

If you like legendary places with haunting stories, this is the place in Tallinn you shouldn’t miss.

Just behind Neitsitorni Museum, there is this amazing entrance for the “Short Leg Gate Tower”, that is considered one of the most haunted places in Tallinn and which looks like more a magic place that takes you back to Medieval time and according local information “The Gate used to be locked at night to stop the commom people of the lower town from bothering the nobility. Apparently, the gate was also supposed to stop the ghosts who were try to seak up to Toompea Hill from the Danish Kings Garden.

We didn’t go inside of the museum, but we totally recommend you spend a good time over there, because it’s just magic place. You will also find some artists selling their paintings from the gate and their ghosts!

Just round from the cathedral you can find the quaint grounds of the Danish King's Garden, with some special history about it and a little museum too. There is some spooky but cool monks towering over you and some trendy graffiti, but the place as a mystical feel about it and worth the visit.

While the garden isn't big, there's a few special things of note in this garden. The first thing you'll probably see are the towering and rather ominous looking statues of monks that look down on you from three different points, the second is the Maiden's Tower. The third is this is apparently where the Danish flag was born! You can read more about these from plaques hanging on the walls of the garden.

Apparently this garden is one of the most haunted places in Old Town, and when the sun sets, it's not hard to see why. If you easily get the collywobbles (or have bad eyesight), I suggest you go when the sun is out and high in the sky - there are two different ways that lead to the garden; one is down a rather steep slope from the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, and the other is up from quite a long flight of stairs, but I can see both paths being quite hazardous in dim light.
