  • Located on a small hill at the back of the old town. Estonia flag hung at the top of tall Hermann pink castle (it is more like the Palace) with is a refreshing contrast. More people visiting on a sunny day, would enjoy its landscape.

  • It is a building located in front of the Cathedral on the Hill. Is really like a castle was visible from far away, you know? Went with it at the Cathedral, temper castle building next to the salmon was. Together with signs and currently used as a Parliament building, located in the corner tower, temper Castle seems to have called.

  • A little bit of Nevsky Cathedral down, such an inhospitable place, but a magnificent fortress. Such an inhospitable atmosphere to create the eye great foggy winter night and best of all, no people jostling to around.
