Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This square is at the heart of the town. The whole town feels so old and is so enjoyable and this is the center of it. I had a great time exploring.

This is a wonderful square, leading to the amazing Viru gates.
The sides of the square are complimented by flower stalls, which add a lot to the atmosphere.

Can't really miss it if you're wandering through Old Town, especially if you're entering or exiting through the southeastern part. Shops and restaurants abound along the cobblestone streets, and historic towers stand tall, sentinels of Old Town.

Be sure to stop and smell the roses--and tulips and carnations and daisies and all the other flowers--being sold at the outdoor flower market!

This place is the square around my most favorite historical site in Tallinn's city center, which is Viru Gate. Every time I come back to Tallinn, I like to pass by here and take a selfie or two.

After passing by the Viru Gates, one enters the Viru Square. There are restaurants, shops, museums, etc. to see and do here. All the facades of the buildings have been maintained to depict the Medieval Era. Lots of areas to take Selfies and other pictures.

The Town-wall with about 30 towers is a miracle. If we walk from east and go into the Old Town through the Viru Gates we saw this nice square. There are lots of cafes, a flower-market and shops with handicrafts. It’s an interesting place, I like it!

There are lots of shops that sell flowers,and other shops in the area,plus a garden area to sit in.
Sometimes there is a horse and cart that takes people on a trip around old Tallinn town.

It was forbidden to visit Tallinn. In December 2020 we managed and went to the Squares. We also made some shopping.

This is the best part of the city for tourists as the old architecture has been preserved and it is full of charm. You will find lots of cafes here, good places to sit and enjoy the scene.

You can't miss this in Tallin... the flower stalls outside the wall and the shops and restaurants just inside the gates.
Most people enter theough here, it's always buzzing with people. However the main attraction here is the colourful flower stalls... so pretty
