Stayed around the corner at the Telegraaf hotel, and had lunch in the square, followed by a visit to a well-stocked local tobacconists (also on the square) for a few Cohibas. Beautiful old buildings, a zillion restaurants and souvenir shops, and even better after dark.

This gorgeous square, with its coloured buildings, continues to be the hub of Tallinn - a meeting place and a marketplace. There is a great vibe here among the old buildings and outdoor cafes where you can people watch for hours.

Centuries old buildings surround this lively square. Check out the world's oldest drugstore and read about the priest's execution. Go slowly and enjoy the myriad of tourists and locals.

A visit to Tallin is not complete without a visit to the town square. Beautiful architecture, shops and great restaurants to do people watching or just relax and enjoy the view. Can rent bicycles on the square to explore the city.
