Along medieval alleys in Tallinn
The old town of Tallinn is one of the best preserved medieval cities in Europe. It felt good to be back and wander along the twisting streets once more.
Originally established in the 13th century by the knights of the Teutonic Order, Tallinn became a major centre of the Hansa League. The old town is surrounded by a massive wall from the medieval times. Traces of this age can also be found in the beautiful merchant houses with adorning guild shields.
Just be sure to bring some good footwear, since the cobblestones are lethal.
