Medieval Tallinn & Legends
The picturesque silhouette of Tallinn's medieval fortifying walls, guard towers, church spires and red roofs has certainly pleased your eye already on the sea. Now it is time to step down and wonder around in this charming city.
The visit of Tallinn starts right from the pier. After a short walk to the Old Town you will be welcomed by the Great Coastal Gate and Fat Margaret's Cannon Tower. Have a splendid walk in Tallinn Old Town, enter into interesting discussions with your local guide, learn about history and everyday life of this small country. The old city with its romantic cobblestone streets, medieval and gothic style houses is the best preserved old town in northern Europe.
Your guide shows you around, talks about interesting legends and facts, but not only. Although the city dates back centuries, the conversation goes on different subjects and this is your opportunity to discover the nowadays life of Estonians.

Eva-Maria was very knowledgeable and helpful for our visit. We would not have been able to see as much, or learn as much about Tallinn without her insights.
