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.

    A mis-read hotel address took us unnecessarily up into this part of town. We returned later (without our luggage) to see the cathedral and a couple of good viewpoints over the city.

    We took advantage during our walks around Old Town of the many opportunities to walk near or through the wall. Hard to imagine the amount of labor involved in sourcing the stone and then constructing the wall. Impressive.

    An excellent experience as always, an amazing set of very diverse exhibitions, I particularly loved "melanie bonajo: When the body says Yes+", spent an hour there,
    the generally pleasant atmosphere, the absolute favourite bookshop and cafe.

    We visited the square on many occasions during our visit to Tallinn.

    The town hall is a focal point standing prominently in the square and really adds to the character of the place.

    As far as we are concerned, taking a photo from this spot is a "must do." excellent panorama of the Old Town skyline. The uphill walk to get hear is easily doable by most.

    The ruins were an interesting sight especially the big facade is very impressive. There are info point here and there which give out nice information, how ever it would be nice to understand the structures more in detail and how the life in the convent would have been like. The ticket machine was broken (it couldn't print out paper) so we got in when someone else got out. It would be nice that the entrance would be more accessible and not dependent on the wits of the tourist. Pirita beach and Metsakalmistu are nearby sights that can be reached by car or bike.

    Interactive show, which is very true and nicely performed. If you want to know, how was life in medieval Tallinn, you should visit the place. And a bit scary tooo

    A small museum and actual pharmacy close to the town square. Fascinating place to visit bearing in mind its ancestry. Not huge but enough foe 20 minutes and children can learn from exhibits . I did and Im 70!! Don't pass it by

    Interesting little museum. Well worth the time to tour. e sure and catch the short video in the basement. The entire museum is only anout4-5 rooms, but you get some great insights about an important figure in history.

    Nice museum and interesting exhibition. It's a very small museum and even when having a bigger interest in the art of photography it's a max 20 minutes look around. So you can consider it as a pro or con.

    This place cost 5 euros to go in. It appears really old. It looks to be part of a larger facility and this is what remains. It’s interesting to see things so old that are still standing. They have staged a lot of artwork inside, I’m not sure why.

    This building is the former headquarters of the Brotherhood of the Blackheads. Back in history they were ship owners and merchants during the Middle Ages. They were also in Latvia. They fled to Germany when the Soviets occupied the Baltic states in 1940. Today the house comprises of halls and other rooms used for events like concerts, conferences and receptions. There are some amazing stone crests around the door. The door itself has beautiful carving.

    There were two different price 10€ for the four towers only and 14€ for a combination ticket - Four towers plus Bastion tunnels. We only pay for the towers and walkthrough the wall although it was pricey, it's worth the price.

    This is a fantastic looking tower, which is part of the ancient wall surrounding the old town of Tallinn.
    The tower, along its nearby towers provide some wonderful photo-ops.

    Not too many stairs, so it won’t be challenging for you to enjoy nice views of the city. The ticket is only 3 Euros which is certainly worth it.
