Panoramic tour of Tallinn. The medieval ancient castle of Tallinn, declared as Heritage of the Humanity by the UNESCO, is divided in three parts: Toompea (or the “Cathedral Hill”), the Old City and the City Estonia. During the tour we will enjoy the views of Kadriorg park and visit the Russalka Memorial, which stands on the seafront. In the Toompea area we will appreciate the Toompea castle, headquarters of Estonian Parliament. In this part of the city there are observation decks providing stunning views of the city. Then we will move to the medieval Old Town of Tallinn, which is known worldwide by its authentic Hanseatic architecture (Brick Gothic style). The oldest cobblestone streets and buildings here were built in the 11th century. The oldest Estonian Lutheran Cathedral is also located in the Old Town part of the city. Other amazing landmarks of the Old Town are St. Nicholas’ Church and St. Olaf’s Church. We will finish our route in the square named Raekoja plats (Town Hall Square), where we will find the Town Hall, the most preserved medieval town hall building in the Northern Europe, which was built in 1404. On the same square opposite the Town Hall there is one of the oldest European pharmacies – Raeapteek (Town Hall Pharmacy), which works since the early 15th century.
