  • The towers are what remains of the gates but it looks incredible at night and there is a flower market right outside too.

  • This is one of the main gates to enter into the "old medieval" town of Tallinn Estonia. This one is the main one nice view. At the end you can see the tower of the town hall. And before going in to your left there is s flower market. Very nice flowers. Visit it.
  • Is located on the main street of the old town . Too many tourists taking pictures. A lot of the time there is a big gathering of teenagers that play their music on a loud speaker and distract the peace of the old town. Inside the tower there is a kebab shop and the flower shops that are nearby are open 24/7 . The old ladies selling flowers are very friendly and helpful
  • A nice medieval piece of work. I enjoyed the food in "Viru Kebab" as well. It was nice!
  • A very comfortable hotel. It is so convenient as you just cross the street to go to the Old Town and there is a gate to the shopping mall inside the hotel. Breakfast is good and varied but they have to add more variety to lunch and dinner. The desserts are faboulous though.😋
  • Very nice and popular place, everybody wants to take pics of them. Me too, I can't resist
