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 was there for a day trip from Helsinki on a Friday in late September. The Old Town is a short walk from the ferry terminal and is itself easily walkable. Most of the buildings, structures and churches are in remarkably good shape, although several of the churches were undergoing restoration projects at the time. Sidewalks are narrow, but there are pedestrian only streets and traffic is light on the other narrow roads. Be sure to have good walking shoes. Some streets are cobblestone, but others are simply various shaped stones set in cement.
    As for the town, I recommend at least two days if you want to tour the churches, hit the shops and explore in more detail. For a day trip, the sights were great and I was able to see just about the entire town in about 5-hours or so.
    Lots of sidewalk restaurants throughout the town and a large central square adjacent to the Old Town Hall. As to be expected, the restaurants and cafes on the square are more expensive and touristy.
    Overall, the town was not overrun with tourists, but that may be due to the late season. I would definitely like to return and spend more time exploring in more depth.

    An amazing view of the old town. Not too crowded, but I happened to be there when a group of tourists passed by.

    A relatively small but very pretty church situated on Toompea Hill right across from the Parliament. No photo allowed inside so just enjoy your visit.

    wonderful park, lush and green, just so sad that all the museums on the terrain, are closed on a Monday.

    I happened to visit the place on a Sunday. There was a medieval styled event going on. Singing, medieval clothing and tents. Pretty funky experience.

    I walked around wishing I had booked a guided tour here as I'm certain I missed some terrific things. It's more than just graffiti style art. Everyone there, of all ages, looked like they were enjoying it. Playgrounds for kids, shops, cafes, studios, etc

    This is one of our favorite places in Old Town Tallinn. It's quiet and has quaint shops and cool tombstones from centuries ago. It's not easy to find this passage - just keep looking!

    The city is remarkable visually, and it was even more spectacular from the viewing point, You can easily traverse the entire old town.

    Good backdrop for photos.
    This is an easy walk from the cruise ship docks.
    This is co-located with the old town so you see this while enroute.

    A pretty part of the old town. Not a must place to visit, since the whole town is surrounded by much larger walls.

    A peaceful and beautiful place to sit and The White Monk terrace next to it is a good place for lunch if you are visiting Kiek in die Koch and as an alternative to their rather soulless cafe (we went out for lunch and back in again afterwards)
