    Tallinn Town Hall Square

    Town Hall Square has been a marketplace and the centre of this old Hanseatic town since the Middle Ages. It became the centre of the Lower Town at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. As a square, it plays an important role today as well. In summer it is filled with outdoor cafes, it plays host to the Old Town Days and other medieval festivals, and is also a venue for open-air concerts, fairs, and more. In winter it becomes an enchanting Christmas market, the centrepiece of which is a towering spruce tree. The tradition of celebrating Christmas festivities here dates back to 1441 when the Brotherhood of the Blackheads are thought to have erected the world's very first Christmas tree.

      I happened to visit the place on a Sunday. There was a medieval styled event going on. Singing, medieval clothing and tents. Pretty funky experience.

    • Historic architecture, well worth a visit

      Beautiful area. Less crowded than I had imagined. Was easy to get a table for six people. There are a lot of restaurants and bars where you can have a meal and drinks. Great opportunity for photos... Read more comments
