  • Many facets to this building. Baroque and pink to the front. Three corner Towers one of which flies the Estonian Flag. Sits on the site of the original 12 th century castle, which no longer exists. 
  • There is a great view from the outside of the parliament buildings in a variety of directions, and the buildings occupy the same square as the adjacent church 
  • Probably the highest Tower of the old city walls. The building is impressive, if not either the most interesting or even the best.
