About
This quiet courtyard in the Old Town is a little piece of Tallinn as it was centuries ago when people appreciated the work of craftsmen, who put their heart and soul into everything they made. You can still see the medieval architecture and enjoy the cosy atmosphere. There are different arts and crafts workshops, guest rooms for accommodations and the famous café Chocolaterie in the yard.

The small shops in the yard with a cafeteria in the middle concentrate each on their chosen materials. Keramikakoda has interesting figures and artefacts in ceramics, they also hold lessons for enthusiastic beginners. Both clothes and home decoration textiles in bright colours are sold at Parem Pool - the Right Side. It is customary in Tallinn to ask for permission to take a photo, the Chinese used to come and copy these unique models to be massproduced cheaply.

There are a few interesting little craft shops and a quirky cafe in this quiet tucked away area not far from the old town hall. Good to visit if you are in the area and want to get away from the crowds.

This narrow street takes you back hundrds of years ago and many craft rom Estonia. There is even a Doll House at the end of the courtyard

The colourfull cafeteria terrace dominates the small yard, the inside is even more exentric but unfortunately they don't allow any photographs, which is quite common in Tallinn.Guarding their personal style so strictly they ignore the fact that nice pictures would bring more clients. There are several workshops, a jeweller, one dyeing silk scarves, another offering bags with animal faces on them.

On the right hand side is a place called Pierre Chocolaterie. We have come in for a hot chocololate. It has some French decadent 20's theme going on ( That may read like i know what i am talking about). It is all low light and dark fabrics. Lovely atmospheric place and the hot chocolate is superb. Mine is plain and nice enough, but my wife has chille and ginger added and it nearly blows your head off!!!. 4 euros each and worth every euro

It looks like an alley to someone's house. Duck in. It's really a passage to a back courtyard that hosts a few craft shops. It's little quieter and less touristy than other souvenir shops and worth a stop.

I was told that this was the place to go to see craftsman at work, yet all I saw was shops and stalls selling these wares, with a few restaurants and cafes. None of the goods interested me, and to be sure they looked good if you want that sort of thing, but it wasn't for me.

Nice courtyard area for a drink or snack which isn't packed with tourist. The small shops offer a variety of handmade goods.

This courtyard is great to stop by and have a drink, as it is off the beaten path and is very calm... away from the crowds and over-abundance of the rest of Old Town.

If you need to take a breath, this is the place to go to !
