Toompea Castle is an impressive building near the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, now housing the Estonian Parliament. Worth a look if you're in the area - didn't go inside. Not sure if you can, but other travelers said you can book a tour in advance.

Currently housing the parliament, there's a small shop with souvenirs connected with the parliament nearby. Right opposite the Nevsky cathedral.

Impressive building, but this is now the Parliament so you cannot go in. Worth a walk round when you are in the area, but only worth a few minutes time really.

Many facets to this building. Baroque and pink to the front. Three corner Towers one of which flies the Estonian Flag. Sits on the site of the original 12 th century castle, which no longer exists.

There is a great view from the outside of the parliament buildings in a variety of directions, and the buildings occupy the same square as the adjacent church
