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.

    You should visit it. It's not very far. It's not one of a kind but it's a palace with history behind. If you are there in summer you can even sit under the sun and have a picnic.

    I had a lovely walk around the grounds and got to see the dried-up moat. We were unable to gain access to the building as it appeared that Parliament was in session. Great view of the city. Be sure and see the tower. Near several other attractions so it is easy to add to your tour. Interesting architectural style.

    We walked by this pink building while visiting Kadriorg. There was a small guard change going on at the same time.

    Not so much tourist value. You cannot get inside.

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

    Pikk Hermann is a defensive tower dating back to 1360 and you can climb the 250 steps for the most amazing view from the viewing platform. It is tallest tower of the old town wall. The building in itself is a very impressive looking with lots of history being built into the town wall.
