  • Toompea - a bit deserted at night

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Toompea is the hill citadel in the middle of Tallinn, and a great place to explore.

    Sadly no-one seems to go up there at night, so its lovely to wander around in the moonlight, but not the place to go to eat. We did visit one restaurant one evening, and although the food was delicious the restaurant was more or less empty - which does put a dampener on the evening.

    Lower and Higher town

    Favorite thing: Old Tallinn has a lower and higher part, because one part of the old town is situated on the hill.
    It makes Tallinn more unique. So people settled here in middle ages.
    Getting to Higher town is not difficult to find two watching-platforms what are connected by old road and are located on the stone between walls of houses under the Lower town.
    From the watching-platforms picturesque view opens to the Lower town-to it?s towers and streets and also to modern towers of downtown.

    Old Town (Vanalinn)

    Old Town (Vanalinn)

    Favorite thing: Explore the Old Town (Vanalinn) of Tallinn with the Town Hall Square (Raekoja Plats) and its many ancient buildings.

    Afterwards climb Toompea Hill by using the cobbled street Pikk Jalg (Long Leg). The Hill is also known as Upper Town and offers many viewing points to enjoy Old Tallinn from above (see photo).
