Tallinn - Along medieval alleys

The old town is full of nooks and crannies with the things you might expect.

  • Leaning tower

    This is the Town Hall square, but most of the buildings are relatively new (18th century) due to the Great Fire of 1775 when almost the entire city centre burned to the ground.

  • The wall

    The city wall was begun in 1265. In the 16th century it spanned over 2 kilometers with 46 gate towers. About half of them still stands today along with most of the wall.
