If you visit it must be during the Christmas markets. This is one of the few places in Europe where commercialism hasn't taken over. There are traditional handicraft stalls, woodturners, food, reindeers and music. Magical in the snow.

I discovered this city by accident, but I'm glad I did. I ended up staying in Old Town. Just a town in Tallinn with everything in it. The town is surrounded by a wall built to keep out the Bulgarian in the 14 century.

We arrived by cruise ship and had a long afternoon to wander around the town.... The Town Hall like everything else in Tallin, is well cared for and well used. Beautiful wood work and style.

28th January 2017. We did not go in; not sure if you can. The outside is most impressive. It's in the Town Square - beautiful in itself. The dragon spouts are famous, but you'll need to look up and closely to see them properly.

The market hall is a beautiful medeival building that has been rennovated. It's really different that other European market halls. In the cellar there is a great medeival restaurant III Draakon (low prices) . You have to visit it to feel the medeival Tallin.

We were disappointed not to have been able to look inside as we were certain it would have been well worth it.
