So beautiful dressed with a giant Christmas tree. Thought the atmosphere was fabulous and makes for an easy waypoint to know how to get home since it's so central to the whole city. Lots of good food right off the sidelines!

This is obviously a must on your visit to Tallinn since it's the heart of the city. The square is large and surrounded by beautiful old buildings.

Pretty old square is a step back in time. Many bars and restaurants around it, though the bars are overpriced.

If all the town squares this one here in Tallinn has to be the prettiest - some lovely shops to visit and not difficult to find
