What you'll do

This fascinating two hour Old Town walking tour starts from the famous Town Hall Square or any other place in Old Town. You will learn the history of Tallinn through interesting stories and feel the medieval atmosphere from a time long past.

Next you will get acquainted with the medieval architecture of Tallinn, and learn what makes it so special. We’ll see churches of the Holy Ghost, St Nicolas, and St. Olaf.

The Old Town consists of two parts, the Lower Town and the Upper Town. After a walk in Lower Town we will head to Upper Town, going up along Short Leg Street. Here you will learn why people say that Tallinn is the town that limps. And what was the reason for discord between the two towns.

Finally you will arrive in Upper Town – the town of noble knights, landlords and soldiers. Here you will discover two cathedrals, Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and Lutheran St Mary’s Cathedral.

Next to the cathedrals we’ll find the castle which hosts the Parliament of Estonia and one castle towers named Tall Herman. Here you will enjoy a view of the city from one of the viewing platforms of Upper Town.

After seeing Upper Town we’ll go back to Lower Town along Short Leg Street and finish the walking tour on Town Hall Square.

My name is Dmitry
I am a licenced tour guide for 12 years and I run a tour agency for 10 years
I have been interested in history from my childhood. As I grew up, my interest turned into a hobby first, and then into a profession. I truly believe that the only way to do something well is to love it and put your heart into it. I love my country, its culture, people and history of all periods, both good and bad. I love to make connections between the old times and the present
day life, because, would not you agree, that knowing the country is not just about reading a book on the history of Middle Ages?

I like jokes and believe that a lot of hidden things can be seen through the humour of the country.

Absolutely wonderful. Dmitry is incredibly knowledgeable. He shared so much of the history of Tallinn with us. He was thoughtful of our interests. I can’t say enough good about his tour. If you’re in Tallinn, take his tour! You will be very glad you did.
