Long Boot (Pikk Jalg), Tallinn

(4.3/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Have a walk along the narrow cobblestone road of Long Boot (Pikk Jalg), the oldest street in the city. Situated among tall ramparts of former forts, medieval warehouses, and churches, this steep street features small cafes, souvenir shops, and artists lining the fortress walls selling their wares. The street eventually leads you to a 14th-century gate, once an entrance to the lower town. Grab a coffee and purchase paintings from some of the artists, or admire the old fortification and snap photos of the heavy iron gates and spired rooftops. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes for walking this uneven road. Arrange to visit Long Boot (Pikk Jalg) and other attractions in Tallinn using our Tallinn trip itinerary builder.

  • One of the culminating places old Tallinn. By the streets impossible to pass here filmed many historical movies. Immediately recall scene attack Knights on townspeople in the famous film of the Soviet era-"Gorod masterov". Immediately you can see the creativity of Tallinn artists. The high walls, old stones, narrow and winding maze-fine Association. The middle ages still rules!
