Viru Square, Tallinn
(4.1/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Walk through Viru Square and take a step back in time. Built in the 14th century, the gate's twin towers were once part of a complex fortification system that protected the bustling trading heart of Tallinn. Most of the walls are gone, but the towers stand as a proud monument to the city's history and mark a gateway between its modern center and the old town. In the vicinity of the gate is a great selection of cafes, restaurants, and shops where you can buy souvenirs. When flowers are in bloom, colorful stalls full of them add a special touch to the gate. The gate is a great starting point for a tour of the historic center of Tallinn on foot or by catching a romantic ride on a horse-drawn carriage. To visit Viru Square and get the most from your holiday in Tallinn, create itinerary details personal to you using our Tallinn trip itinerary maker.

  • Mesto ispred glavnih gradskih vrata starog grada gde se susrecu tri najvaznije ulice Talina. Novijeg je datuma postoji tek od 2002 godine. 
  • It was under construction when I visited it, in September. The towers are still there, so you can, at least, see something. 
  • This is the entrance to the old town. Very nice and with his side many shops of florists. The flooring is of recent renovation and souvenir shops begins at its entrance and several local bars and restaurants. A real charm in all of Tallinn
