The town hall square has an interesting history dating back into the middle ages. It has also served as a market and is surrounded by cafes, shops and restaurants. It was not overly busy the day we were there so getting around was quite easy. People friendly and helpful.

Definitely worth a walk around the square to look at the gorgeous buildings & soak up the vibe. The location is reflected in the food prices etc. There are some amazing little shops just off the square in the multiude of alleyways.

Tallinn is known as a cheap/budget place to travel - do yourself a favor and find the more local non touristy places to eat that are actually a good value for the... More

Visited this place during Christmas market time. Tasted a few wines and had a few delicacies. Purchased a few items as well - mostly related to Estonia / Tallinn or Christmas. Decent place to spend time.
