Toompea Hill, Tallinn

4.6
Home to medieval castle fortifications, a host of churches, and the seat of Estonia's parliament, Toompea Hill has represented the epicenter of power for Tallinn's rulers throughout history. You can make your way from the lower portion of the World Heritage-listed old town to the top of the hill via a long cobbled walkway. You'll pass by a ninth-century fortress that houses the seat of the national government, the Russian Orthodox cathedral, and the 124 m (407 ft) tall church of St. Olaf. For a basic tour of the upper town, follow the remains of the city's walls around their perimeter, stopping for photos at the viewing platforms along the way.

  • Nice view over the city

  • The high society, the nature of living in this place is not so expensive, so everywhere is a large house. About 200 years ago, this Zeng had a big fire and destroyed most of the houses, so most of the houses currently seen were churches and museums built after the 18 century.
