If you're lucky with the weather, the walks are fabulous, the views breathtaking and the restoration of a city after almost 50 years of Russian neglect is amazing.

The Toompea Hill is defintiely worth seeing if you're planning to stay in Tallinn. Not only is it a fantastic area for a walk, but it is also a perfect place for those who are keen on photography.

There is lots of history on the hill. It is a great area for a stroll plus you can climb up the bell tower of the church too.

As you walk around this area look out for info boards and really look at the historic building, go into the churches. Look up on the buildings for monuments, paintings and cartouches there all tell the story of Estonia.

Nice place to see the whole city. We were living one minute walk to this Tompea area so it was amazing to visit it at day and also at night.

Toompea Hill was the first site on our must see list of Tallinn & we got there on a ride share Bolt (just happens to be an Estonian company). Toompea is full of character not only as a location to get views of the Old Town but also for the historic churches & the Estonian Parliament. We walked the narrow & picturesque streets. Very interesting.

The best places for views over the city of Tallinn. Try to avoid the crowds by going early or late in the day.

It is probably the best view of the city. Walking there (which is a hike) along with nearby building make the experience even more special. Definitely worth visiting.
