Tallinn Old City Shore Excursions – 5 hrs
Tallinn’s appeal is rooted in its rich history. Its UNESCO-protected old town has winding alleyways, ornate doorways and medieval courtyards. Among Nordic medieval cities, there’s none nearly as well-preserved as Tallinn, nor more dense with restaurants, cafés, and surprises.
Kings, queens and czars have walked the streets of the charming two-tiered city.
Tallinn once consisted of two feuding medieval towns separated by a wall. The upper town—on the hill, called Toompea—was the seat of government ruling Estonia. The lower town was an autonomous Hanseatic trading center filled with German, Danish, and Swedish merchants who hired Estonians to do the hardwork!

With its pastel-colored buildings all pretty in a row, the Town Hall Square is reminiscent of pages from a children’s fairytale book.
