A must see of the Baltic, this medieval walled city has everything to charm you!
Tallinn port is only a 15 minute walk from the walled city in Tallinn.
There is free Wi-Fi almost everywhere; provided by the city of Tallinn.
If you only want to visit the walled city, don’t look for any mode of transportation other than your feet! Cars and buses are not allowed inside the walled city.
One really fun thing to do, is to walk to city walls. The stairs are right south of Viru Gate. The port is closer to the Pikku Gate. Walking outside the walls, between the 2 gates, there is a little market with souvenirs.
Once you reach the Greek Orthodox Nevsky Cathedral on top of the hill, walk through the entire street, even the small ones. You will see 3 outlooks, perfect location for pictures!
