Town Hall Square, Tallinn
The center of Old Town TOWN HALL SQUARE - RAEKOJA PLATS is the very heart of Tallinn. Dominating the square is the late Gothic Tallinn Town Hall, surrounded by elaborate merchant houses, shops and restaurants, like Vana Toomas at Raekoja Plats 8.
The square is the venue for small festivals, concerts and markets. Actually while we were there, a wonderful concert was being held. The XXXIII Tallinna Vanalinna Paevad was held 24-5 to 01-6, 2014.
We had the honor of listening to an awesome orchestra, featuring two ladies playing Celtic music on bagpipes.
And each winter it is the site of the town's Christmas tree and a Christmas Market.
Favorite thing: The Town Hall Square is heart of Tallinn and every time if i get there I will say hello to Old Thomas, just for fun.
