Walking tour of the historical heart of Tallinn is the best way to see and learn about all the main places of interest in the capital of Estonia.
The soul of our medieval city is in it's narrow streets and medieval homes, magnificent churches and of course - the Town Hall.
We will cover both: the merchant Lower town and stupendous Upper town - the residence of the landlords. With it's Dome Church, Toompea Castle, Alexander Nevskii Cathedral viewing points and much more.
We'll see the churches of the Holy Ghost, St Nicolas and St. Olaf.
The old town consists of two parts, the Lower town and the Upper town. After a walk in the Lower town we will head to the Upper town, going up along Short Leg street, we will know why people say that Tallinn is the town that limps. And what was the reason for the discord between the two towns.
Finally we are in the Upper town - the town of noble knights, landlords and soldiers. There we will see two cathedrals, Russian Orthodox cathedral of Alexander Nevski and Lutheran cathedral of St. Mary.
Next to the cathedrals we'll find the castle which hosts the Parliament of Estonia and one of the towers of the castle named Tall Herman. We will enjoy the view of the city from one of the viewing platforms of the Upper town.
After seeing the Upper town we'll go back to the Lower town along the Short Leg street and finish the tour in Town hall square - best place for lunch, relaxed walk or souvenir shopping
