Fat Margaret (Paks Margareeta), Tallinn
Categories: Specialty Museums, Landmarks, Museums, Tourist Spots
Standing as an imposing guard at one of the entrances to the old city of Tallinn, Fat Margaret (Paks Margareeta)--as it's lovingly known--represents the largest single piece of the town's surviving fortifications. Stop by the tower, which is part of the Estonian Maritime Museum, and examine its massive walls, standing 20 m (66 ft) high and measuring 5 m (16.5 ft) thick in some places. Wander the halls of the 16th-century defensive structure and you'll be treated to a chronological look at Estonia's maritime history. Be sure to climb up to the tower's roof, where you'll be rewarded with a sweeping view of the sea and the surrounding historical center.

「ふとっちょマルガレータ」のネーミングで知られる塔です。 旧市街北側の門から入ってすぐ。 確かに他の塔に比べると横幅が広く、ずんぐりした感じです。 ずんぐり感とネーミングが可愛く、一度聞いたら忘れられないかも。This is known in the naming of "Margaret". From the gate of the old city on the north side, right away. It is stocky, certainly compared to the other tower was wide. Maybe once it hears, stocky and naming is pretty unforgettable.show original

Good hostel, close to the city center and a tram/bus stop right in front of the door. Nice common area and free sauna in the mornings. Rooms very basic, showers/restrooms could be more and cleaner.
Very popular cheap hostel, with great location
