About
Haapsalu, which is bordered by the sea on three sides, fits on a piece of land with a size of just 10.59 km2. The Old Town is located on a peninsula with two eskers, which continue to the north-west as a chain of islets (holms) connected to the mainland. There are low meanders between the holms – Suur and Vaike Viik.The culturally and environmentally valuable Old Town of Haapsalu can be divided into its medieval section and the 20th century health resort area. The medieval part is around the Episcopal castle, with the medieval network of Kooli, Jaani, Vee, Linda, Ruutli and Vaike-Mere Streets and buildings. It is surrounded by a belt of wooden houses and the Promenade, Aafrika beach and parks.

a small, lively place

a small, lively place and worth to walk around at every season. The old wooden houses are mostly in a good shape. perfectly fitted to the castles, but as well explained why and how they are that close to each other. in the inner area you find a lot of cozy cafe and restaurants. Nice trip.

Haapsalu’s Old Town is gorgeous and we loved our few hours walking around. The timber buildings are so full of character and the townspeople seem to take a lot of pride in their homes and gardens, lovely well cared for gardens and whilst many houses were showing their age, they were still charming.

Walked the streets of the old town - absolutely beautiful. Larger than I expected. And very busy. A visit to Tallin is not complete without getting lost in its streets
