“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is just outside the entrance to the old town. As far as I could see all there was was a liqeur shop, two exchange offices and lots of flower stands.

“the best Square to enter the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

When you go through the Viru entrance gate to the old city, you're welcome by a couple of beautiful Towers and showers of flowers.
-If you're looking for souvenirs, you'll find plenty of gift shops in the surroundings.
-If you turn right, you'll be heading towards Helleman tower and handicraft stalls.
-If you turn left, well,.... you'll get out of the old city...
-If you go straight, you'll go to the inner city center and pass by many restaurants and cafes.
-If you plan a shopping spree, go back to Viru shopping mall. (above the bus station)
-If you're starving, you might just rush into the Mc Donald which will be right in front of you !!

Given the realm of possibilities it offers, Viru square is definitely a place to visit !!

“The Place to get Tallinn Souvenirs and flowers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Once you complete your tour of Old Town and just before you go the the KGB Museum sits this Tallinn Souvenir shopping area which appears to have taken a page out of Walt Disney World!! Seriously this is the place to get your low cost souvenirs or flowers. To be honest we found some shops inside the old town that we bought some higher end items and the price difference WAS significant so do some price comparison...it will be worth your time.

“Flowers, Flowers and McDonalds”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

If you are travelling with a lady friend then you must visit this part of Tallinn as there are plenty of flower shops to keep them quiet ...and you wallet open!!

Good for photos (and theres a McDonalds close... the only cheap food we found)
