Observation Deck
"The Toompea is the highest point of Tallinn’s Old Town. At the top of the mountain there is a town hall and a church ⛪️, and the time we have is the most famous viewpoint, with the old town under the mountain in the background."

Historical Architecture
"The interior decoration of Tallinn City Hall is as simple as its exterior buildings. Two of the halls are the most worth seeing. The Civic Hall was a place where banquets and city laws were read in the Middle Ages. Today it is still used for receptions and concerts. The walls of the hall have been repainted and are very bright. There are not many decorations in the hall, the most striking is the knitted tapestries hanging on the wall, which depicts the life of King Solomon. If you look closely at these tapestries, you can find that the characters are quite noble in dress and their movements are extremely elegant. The whole picture is very harmonious and charming, much like the international Gothic art style popular in the late Middle Ages. The assembly hall is where the city council gathers to discuss local laws and regulations. Many of the oldest decorations are preserved here. However, the doors of the hall are made by the Tallinn Grand Piano Factory. They are black and painted with varnish, like a piano cover. There is also a 15th-century carved wooden bench in the hall. It is covered with a pile of tweed cloth. The two sides of the bench are decorated with exquisite hollow carvings. It is the oldest wooden carving art in Estonia. Overall, the interior decoration of the Tallinn City Hall is far less cool and charming than the city halls of other big cities in Europe. However, as the only remaining Gothic City Hall in several Nordic countries so far, it can be a peep and understanding of Tallinn. Window of medieval art."

Churches and Cathedrals
"This church is submerged in the splendor of Tallinn’s Old Town and is not easy to find. This atypical Gothic church also has a bell tower that breaks through the sky. The exterior is very simple, with beautiful window grilles and sculptures inside. It is worth seeing."

Ancient Trail
"We were late October so the statues were packed and sadly we didn't see them. The park was huge and well dressed and the ducks and squirrels were not at all afraid of people. I would recommend bringing good things with you. Didn't visit the palace but the view from the outside was impressive."
