Tallinn Old Town 05/2011

    Center map

    Tallinn – the capital and the biggest city in Estonia with population around 500 000 inh. First mention of the settlement is dated to 1154.

    The city itself is not very big and therefore Old Town is pretty compact. But in this case – the size doesn’t really matter ) The Old Town is cut up with numerous small picturesque streets. You don’t need to walk around a lot to find somewhat like medieval scenery – it’s just everywhere.
