This fascinating two hour Old Town walking tour starts from the famous Town Hall Square or any other place in Old Town. You will learn the history of Tallinn through interesting stories and feel the medieval atmosphere from a time long past. You will see all the main highlights – the Latin quarter where a Dominican monastery was situated since the 13th century, Pikk Street, which use to be the main street of Tallinn in the Middle Ages, where we’ll find the houses of merchant and craftsmen guilds. You will discover the history of medieval Tallinn, the town that joined the Hanseatic League – the trading union in Europe in the 13th-16th centuries.
The Old Town consists of two parts, the Lower Town and the Upper Town.
After a walk in Lower Town we will head to Upper Town, going up along Short Leg Street. Here you will learn why people say that Tallinn is the town that limps. And what was the reason for discord between the two towns.
