A two-hour excursion of Tallinn’s Old Town leads tour groups back to the distant Middle Ages. Through colourful legends, exciting facts, myths and arcane folklore, the unique story of Estonia and Tallinn’s early years is introduced to both local history buffs and foreign tourists.
The excursion starts in front of the oldest town hall in Scandinavia and the Baltics. The walk follows the old street grid now enshrined on UNESCO’s heritage list, resembling a visit to an outdoor museum containing rarities. The sights include storied landmarks such as the Raeapteek apothecary shop, the Great Guild, Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Toompea Castle, Neitsitorn tower and many others, along with unforgettable panoramas of the lower town and sea from two observation platforms.
