Toompea Hill, Tallinn

(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you want to see the beautiful Tallinn, and experience at the same time exciting adventure in the Castle, I would recommend the place.

Revolutions of the times can be found on the Web. The peculiar atmosphere of the castle walls. ..
