Trip Planner: Europe / Estonia / Harju County / Tallinn / Tallinna Raekoja Plats
Surrounded by shops, restaurants, historical buildings, and its namesake structure, Tallinna Raekoja Plats is one of the focal points for activity and culture in Tallinn. Dating to the early 15th century, the square features a number of Gothic-style architectural gems and streets that branch out from the center, leading to hidden courtyards, secluded gardens, and cobbled alleys. The town hall showcases arched doorways and a 64 m (210 ft) tall tower. You'll often find a great deal of activity in the square, ranging from performers to souvenir stalls; in fact, local legend has it that the world's first Christmas tree was raised here in 1441. Watch for the circular "compass" tile in the square, from where you can see Tallinn's spires rising above the tops of the surrounding buildings.

Nice old building around the square. Bars and restaurants have there outdoor terrace setup around the square. Great place to grab some food or get something to drink. Nice and sunny during the day and nicely lit during the times the sun is down.
Tallinn is such a beautiful city. We strolled though alleys and discovered so many quaint sites. One of the more beautiful Old Towns I have visited. You can sit in the Square at the many restaurants and enjoy the ambiance!
Town Hall and it's square is a center of the miniature universe called Tallinn Old town. The entire old part of the city is quite compact but very homogeneous, very little intrusions of modern architecture, and the old wall of Tallinn makes a nice boundary between old and new. Lots of different restaurants to choose from, like in other touristy places, locations close to the main attractions.
Tallin was amazing part of our trip. There was so kind people. We even went to Olde Hansa to taste traditional food of Tallin and they was good.
Medieval old town hall. Gothic style building. Big and open. Nice place to spend time. Very happening. Several restaurants representing Italian, Indian and Baltic. Several souvenir shops. You can find Baltic Amber jewellery shops both expensive and cheap depending on the grade of the Amber.
