Town Hall Square Plaza

Local legend has it that the cause of all the structural problems that the Cathedral has undergone since its opening is that, although the temple was built to commemorate a Russian hero, the building stands in reality over the grave of a Estonian hero. The center of the city, called Vanatallinn, is walled. The central square or Reacoja Plats, is one of the most beautiful in Europe, especially during the summer evenings, when the sky is dyed pink. The beautiful gothic building of the Town Hall, or Reacoja, has been completely restored and now looks the beautiful color of the limestone piece with which it was originally built. The visit should climb the tower to have the best view of the city. At Caterpillar you will find additional information. On the north side of the Town Hall Square Plaza, is located the Church of glory or Puhavaimu Kirik (l-d 10: 00 to 16: 00). East modest but beautiful church was completed in 1360, and is considered the best medieval part of the country. The clock of the 17TH century, created by Christian Ackermann stands out.

On the East side of the Church of glory, begins the most romantic streets of Tallinn. This narrow street fully domed, has a faint light, product of the antique iron lamps lined up on the roof. Here you can visit the shops of local artisans and some weird tombstones attached to the walls. Oleviste Kirik, or the Church of St Olaf, this precious white Church, was the tallest building in Europe at some point. The tall and slender needle crowned with a copper hood, was used by the KGB as a transmitting antenna. It is now a lookout, with a great view. Loosi Plats or Castle Square is the Centre of Trompea, the high area of the city, and it has been the settlement of the power of the country for centuries.
