One of the best in Europe

Lot of history in Tallinn`s old town and thank god, well preserved and restored. One, if not the best example in Europe.

Beautiful old town and the town hall is situated on the main square. In the winter time there is an amazing Christmas Market and when it starts to snow it looks like a winter wonderland. In the summer time there is a market every wednesday where you can buy lot of souvenirs and handmade local stuff.

The very center of medieval walls encircled Old town is adorned with a terrific Town Hall building. The simple Gothic Town hall bldg with its high slim turret looks movie like, like from Harry Potter. It dates back to 14 cent. You can climb the tower Apr-Sept and there's a medieval style pub on a street level.

Apparently it is the oldest remaining gothic town hall in northern Europe. Certainly dominates the Square. Yet again one of those buildings you must see.

This was a simple town square, but we happened to be there on when it was market day and there was quite a variety of handmade jewellery, woolens, wooden crafts.

This is a prominent building in Town Hall Square. Great picture backgrounds. We did not see that it was open the day in September that we were there. It could have been but we did not see any open doors.

This building is in Old Town the center square of Tallinn. The view from the tower is amazing but it is mostly open during the summer months. The building is full of historical charm. There is a medieval style pub on the street level. It is lit by candlelight. The waitresses are dressed in the medieval period and make this... More

The view from the top is grand when it's open, though even if not able to partake, there's the little medieval style pub with Elk Soup, and Ox ribs to satiate hunger. Lit by candles, warmth fills the tavern, the banter from the waitress behind the bar, was awesome. Go and ask for mead ;)

The Town Hall is not open past Agust 30th, so you can not climb the tower for an overview. You can climb a church tower (St. Johannes?) for a great view.
