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.

    I visited the palace and gardens on my first day in Tallinn. The museum has some wonderful works of art and was a pleasure to wonder.
    There was a helpful security guard that helped guide me to the lockers for my bags. Language was a bit of a barrier but he did good. I have to say I felt a little uncomfortable when getting my ticket for the gallery as the woman serving seemed quite short and unimpressed with me. It left me wondering if language would be a huge barrier for my trip to Tallinn. It was a nice little visit though and the gardens are really nice for a wander after.
    I am pleased to say that much of Tallinn, over my three days in the city, made up for any bad vibes from day one.

    This is a slightly deceptive building viewed from the front, pink facade next to the cathedral, as it doesn't resemble a castle. This baroque building was built sometime after the castle. To see its true (medival) identity you need to take a short detour to see its alter-ego!

    Located accross from the Alexander Newski Cathedral, this attraction caught my attention. People/tourists were posing infront of it, must be an important building. No entrance for tourists here.

    Behind this attaction is a beautiful garden and a Tower. Took several pictures here.

    Situated in a forrest in the outskirts of Tallinn, this historical castle is worth a visit on a day out.

    Our tour bus stopped here and I was able to walk around the gardens and explore a little - the tower truly is imposing! And the grounds are beautiful. There is also a public restroom here, which many found useful.
