If you go up to Toompea (and you definitely should if you are visiting Riga), then there is a good chance that you will walk either up or down this street. You pass through a gate in the wall and it seems just like you...More

A perfectly ordinary view of the town. A museum near by which was nice, and a map to indicate where you were. However, its not much, and the view is a little bit better further down. I did very much like the old building surrounding...More

From Toompea Hill - Either up or down. Not too steep and there are a few artists displaying their paintings on the walls. Nothing fantastic to say it is a must, but you will undoubtedly come across this street on your exploration of the city....More

You'll probably walk down here having been to a view point or the area around the embassies, it's more a thoroughfare than a standalone activity!

Old street along the city walls with some street vendors and artists. It was not crowded when I was there and the big old walls are worth checking out. The old part of Tallin is well preserved.

This is a quaint, quiet little street going up the hill to Toompea Castle. There are artists and musicians to watch the whole way up!
