I love Tallinn's old city center. Toompea Hill is the old center, with the famous churches and government buildings. Interesting little streets and hidden vistas are great for wandering.

Bit of a trek up the hill but well worth the effort. Great views of the city and surrounding area. Fantastic cathedral dominates the summit a must visit. Alas no photo's allowed.

Climb up to the top to get a wonderful view of Tallinn and beyond and also visit the beautiful cathedral up there.

This provides yet another vantage point to over look Old Town Tallinn. Located close to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, Toompea Castle and other attractions it is a good spot to relax, regroup and veiw the old city. Free to enter it is a beautiful space.

Love the view of the city and the buildings from the hill. It is a must visit as you get a good look of the Old town. The buildings remind me of a medieval town and we got a good view of the church!
