This fascinating two hour Old Town walking tour starts from the famous Town Hall Square or any other place in Old Town. You will learn the history of Tallinn through interesting stories and feel the medieval atmosphere from a time long past.

You will see all the main highlights — the Latin quarter where a Dominican monastery was situated since the 13th century, Pikk Street, which use to be the main street of Tallinn in the Middle Ages, where we’ll find the houses of merchant and craftsmen guilds. You will discover the history of medieval Tallinn, the town that joined the Hanseatic League — the trading union in Europe in the 13th-16th centuries.

Next you will get acquainted with the medieval architecture of Tallinn, and learn what makes it so special. We’ll see churches of the Holy Ghost, St Nicolas, and St. Olaf.

The Old Town consists of two parts, the Lower Town and the Upper Town. After a walk in Lower Town we will head to Upper Town, going up along Short Leg Street. Here you will learn why people say that Tallinn is the town that limps. And what was the reason for discord between the two towns.

Finally you will arrive in Upper Town — the town of noble knights, landlords and soldiers. Here you will discover two cathedrals, Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and Lutheran St Mary’s Cathedral.

Next to the cathedrals we’ll find the castle which hosts the Parliament of Estonia and one castle towers named Tall Herman. Here you will enjoy a view of the city from one of the viewing platforms of Upper Town.

After seeing Upper Town we’ll go back to Lower Town along Short Leg Street and finish the walking tour on Town Hall Square.

Ask a question

I have been interested in history from my childhood. As I grew up, my interest turned into a hobby first, and then into a profession. I truly believe that the only way to do something well is to love it and put your heart into it. I love my country, its culture, people and history of all periods, both good and bad. I love to make connections between the old times and the present
day life, because, would not you agree, that knowing the country is not just about reading a book on the history of Middle Ages?
