    Awesome
    Amazing. It’s so great that the old part of town is so unchanged. This narrow passage from long ago is very cool. Before cars these were probably fairly common but in most cities they are long gone. Talinn’s old town is amazing and this passage is also amazing.

    Cute and Romantic
    This path is a very nice area to walk and discover the interior city. With history, quite (when I went) and with romantic atmosphere that help enjoy the place. There are a couple of handmade artisans to buy a real nice souvenirs.

    Historical and quaint
    Historical, quaint, easy to find, and doesn't take a lot of time to stroll through. In addition to the ubiquitous shops that are spread throughout Old Town (glass and ceramics, here), there are gravestones on one of the walls from hundreds of years ago (if memory serves, in the 13 or 1400s?), which are neat to check out.

This is quite a picturesque medieval street with arches and small coffee shops along its sides.
It's well worth a quick visit while in the old city.

The Passage gets its name from St Catherine’s Church , which is part way along the passage. It’s very characterful and was restored in the 1990s. On one side you will find some former tombstones, which are most unusual. Quite a medieval walk!

Beautiful little passageway and easy to miss. There are tombstones attached to the wall which are 700 years old! Make sure to take a walk down this side street.

This alleyway really gives you a sense of being in the past - both very pretty and highly atmospheric. There are little craft shops along the edge, and at the top end there are some rescued huge tombstones from the monastery that used to be nearby.

If you have seen the Shambles in York this is shorter and less impressive. Realistically this is an ancient shortcut that now has some craft shops on it.

After visiting the Catholic Cathedral od St. Peter and St. Paul, I came across this passage. There is nothing impressive about it, some thrash around, and graffitis on the walls.

Briefly took some pictures and hurriedly left.

Arguably Tallinn's prettiest arched street that you'll see in many tourist guides. Its worth a stroll down but appears to be overrun with tourist craft shops one side and some ugly stone burial slabs on the other that serve no purpose being there in my view!
