  • Its a modern looking square. With a monument. Not much else going on. A nice wide-open space. If you have time to kill them walk through, but if you are constrained for time them I would visit other p...  more »
  • a monument that cost a fortune, can't be beautiful (it looks more Soviet and Estonian) and we're not really proud in the end - but it represents the liberation of Estonia as independent people...

  • I passed by here to go to the Church of St. John the Baptist is the atmosphere of the old city left the big square and Harju Street in the old town within walking distance to the South, the Church was a drab square contemporary like so, but square is not enough to go all the way

  • Vana Talinn cafe is nice. The drink is great. Seafood soup is great value. People are very nice
  • It is like Tallinn does not know what it should do with its one of the most important squares. As it is now, a place for the pedestrians, it is more suitable and reasonable than what it used to be - a parking lot. You have to do your best to ignore the monstrous slab of Liberty plexiglass, of course. They must have been drunk when they designed it.
  • Nice open square near the old town of Tallinn. There are some cafés on one side of the square where you can stop for a drink.
  • A big square with beautiful surroundings, old buildings and towers, and you could enter the oldtown from there.
  • The square...from medieval times. A must see to futher appreciate Tallinn.

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
