A perfect way to explore the medieval city’s cobbled streets, well-preserved architecture, city walls and watchtowers.
Walk up Toompea Hill to the wide Palace Square where, at the top, stands Toompea Castle, a baroque structure used by the Estonian parliament.
Step into the amazing Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, whose glorious mosaics and icons will impress and inspire you. The massive Cathedral dominates the entire skyline of the Upper Old Town. The Dome Church is your next destination, where, after wandering along narrow cobblestone streets, you’ll see more than 60 coats of arms on display. For a true orientation overview of the town, look out over the rooftops of the Lower OldTown from a scenic viewpoint.
Head down to the Town Hall Square and enjoy some free time to see the Gothic Town Hall. A visit to an historical residence will include a concert of traditional medieval music before you walk back to your coach in central Tallinn.
Note: The interior visit to the Dome Church is not possible on Sundays. You are advised that there is approximately 3½ hours’ total walking, which includes cobbled paths and stairs at the various attractions. Comfortable, non-slip shoes are recommended. Flash photography or video cameras are not permitted in the Dome Church or Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Should the historical residence not be available, a church may be visited for the concert instead.
