Explore Tallinn and listen legends about its most important square, the Town Hall Square

The Town Hall Square has been the undisputed hub of Tallinn’s Old Town for the last eight centuries. The best examples of the historical importance of the square are the well preserved gothic Town Hall and the oldest pharmacy in Europe. Although, criminals are no longer chained in front of the town hall and the pharmacy doesn’t function as a rowdy drinking place for wine-lovers anymore, the square continues to play an active role in the lives of local people as well as the many tourists who flock there. The square is a venue for numerous festivals, markets and cafes. Surely, it’s the best place to start our tour and answer common questions like how old is Tallinn, how has it developed through centuries and what life was like here during the medieval ages when the old Tallinn was built.
