Tallinn Old Town, photo: Jaak KadakTallinn is the oldest capital city in Northern Europe with a population of almost 420,000. The city’s Old Town center boasts a beautifully-preserved medieval character that was recognized as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site in 1997.

Despite being one of the world’s least religious countries, Tallinn is home to a diverse range of religious architecture representing a cross-section of denominations. Among the inspiring edifices are the spire of 13th century St. Olav’s (Oleviste), the tallest building in the world from 1549 to 1625; the 13th century St. Nicholas’ Church (Niguliste), which is home to an extensive art collection, including a painting by Bernt Notke: “Dance Macabre” (Dance of Death), with an estimated value over billion dollars; and the 1900 onion-domed Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral.


Tallinn Town Hall Square, photo: Jaak NilsonAt the heart of Old Town is the Town Hall Square, known as Raekoja plats. An immense cobble-stoned expanse, it is lined with historic buildings in sherbet shades of raspberry, lemon and mint and lively outdoor cafes. Anchoring one side of the plaza is the Town Hall, the only intact Gothic town hall in Northern Europe and now a museum and concert hall.

Wandering among the maze-likes alleys, you’ll find hidden courtyards, charming cul-de-sacs and more than 25 art galleries. Looming over the city is Toompea Castle, which dates to the 10th century. Thecity’s ancient walls feature 26 watch towers, including one known as “Fat Margaret.”
