  • I had a lovely walk around the grounds and got to see the dried-up moat. We were unable to gain access to the building as it appeared that Parliament was in session. Great view of the city. Be sure...

  • Rich in history and a very conservative area of the city. Bustling with cruise ship tourists in the summer time but pretty much traditions still adhered to especially the neighboring church. Area is full of life with colors and unique architectures reflecting the Russian influence in the country.
  • It is a beautiful place and the walls of the castle are amazing. We just saw from outside, and consider that during winter it is hard to walk in the stairs
  • I dont think you can go inside the castle, its written the parliament of estonia on the building now. Although no guard or anything, there isnt any access inside the castle. But there is an opening to the garden next to the castle, its small but neat and beautiful.. you also can view some scenary from the garden cos its located higher than the surroundings.
  • Beautiful place. Has a pretty cathedral of Alexander near it. Its very close to the central boulevard with many good restaurants and coffee shops. Pastoral houses and roads. Very recommended!!!
  • Only saw it from the outside but like everything else in Tallin it’s ruddy beautiful!
