Tallinn Old Town
Enclosed by medieval walls, Tallinn's Old Town is a charming collection of ancient churches, grand baroque palaces and forbidding fortifications. Dating back to the 12th century, Tallinn's old town is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and shows the influences of Danish, Swedish, German and Russian rule in its architecture with a plethora of styles and features. The cobbled market square of Raekoja plats sits at the centre of town and throughout the year plays host to open-air performances, medieval festivals, and a magical Christmas market in the winter months.
