We enjoyed walking around here. The weather was cold and still some snow on the ground which gave the place a nice atmosphere.

Another very beautiful gate into the old town of Tallinn, with pretty park lands adjoining. This narrow little gate with impressive bulwark.

A lovely sight to see as you walk from the ferry port towards the old town. It guides you into Tallinn and toward Long Street. Very pleasant indeed.

This is part of the Maritime Museum, in a really unusual medieval tower. My husband loved it and spent over an hour here.

Fat Margaret is the name given to the fat tower which houses the Maritime Museum. It is an obvious land mark and an unmistakable part of the the Old Tallinn Town Wall. Perhaps its most remarkable claim to fame as a tourist attraction, other than housing...More
