What to expect

After meeting your guide, they will take you to see all of Tallinn's highlights.

Starting in the Latin quarter where a 13th-century Dominican monastery is waiting to be discovered, you will then head over to Pikk Street, which use to be the main street of Tallinn in the Middle Ages. Here you’ll find the houses of merchants and craftsmen guilds.
Your guide will let you in on the history of medieval Tallinn, the town that joined the Hanseatic League. You will get acquainted with the medieval architecture of Tallinn, and learn what makes it so special.

You'll see the churches of the Holy Ghost, St Nicolas, and St. Olaf and after a walk through Lower Town you will head to Upper Town via Short Leg Street. Once you have reached Upper Town, be surprised by two beautiful cathedrals, the Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the Lutheran St Mary’s Cathedral. Next to the cathedrals, you will find the castle which hosts the Parliament of Estonia.

One of the viewing platforms of Upper Town will offer you to take in stunning views of the city. After getting some envy-provoking pictures in, you will head back to Lower Town along Short Leg Street and finish the walking tour on Town Hall Square.
