One of the most peculiar streets in Tallinn's Old Town. When USSR moviemakers showed "West" they filmed Pikk Jalg.

Very pictoresque old mediaval street which leads to the old Toompea hill. Quite a steep road with cobblestones. There are sometimes troubadures alongside of the street or painters selling their art. Well worth walking through because Toompea hill is one of the best sights in...More

This lane and tower date from 1380 and provide one of the access points from Toompea Hill to the Old Town. Quite steep in sections but there is a handrail to use.

We stumbled across it as we got lost in Old Town. Another beautiful street in Old town. Walk along and soak in the beauty.

From Toompea Hill - Either up or down. Not too steep and there are a few artists displaying their paintings on the walls. Nothing fantastic to say it is a must, but you will undoubtedly come across this street on your exploration of the city....More

This path from the viewpoint of Tompea down to the Old town square is like going in a medieval old land. Artists are sitting making their art and showing their art on the mural wall, some of the artists are quite good, I have bought...More

A good way to get up to toompea (upper town), if its not raining artists hang there paintings for display/sale. This way is far better than the stairs of Patkuli especially going up. The story goes: Back in medieval times, this was the only access...More

My wife and I also walked part of this street on our way from Toompea Hill towards the Town Hall Square. We took a couple of pictures of moss on the wall.
