Town Wall, Tallinn

4.3
Part of Tallinn's old town World Heritage Site and replete with defensive gates, Town Wall is one of the most complete examples of this kind of structure in the world. Originally constructed in the mid-13th century, the wall has undergone several upgrades, increasing in thickness and height to its current size. Wander through the town and along the 1.85 km (1.15 mi) length of the medieval wall as you examine its 20 different towers and multiple imposing entry gates. You'll get an up-close look at the structures that helped to defend Tallinn for centuries, and you can even walk on top of the wall for 200 m (656 ft) for sweeping views of the rest of the city. Be sure to stop by the "nun's tower," Sauna tower, and Kuldjala tower, as they are open to the public.

In particular, the outer wall of the old town-town overlooking the old town rises in January. Viru gate, is located right next to it is a paid position, walls and wooden walkways over a medieval feel to it as you can get. Tallinn's old town if you hear at least once to look into visiting.

  • This is a remnant of the old fortress in the Tallinn old town. After paying admission, can explore the Castle whose size is not too large. Climbing stairs, then came over the Fort. If it's gone cold, make sure the jangan myaim kesorean there because 3 counters are already closed. Make sure the ladder rises up above, get a photo window, and see you there. Will get a nice framing for fotomu with the background of the city of Tallinn. But be careful when sitting dijendelanya. Search the walls were rather broad.
