During the festive season, the square is filled with markets. Unfortunately, they are mostly selling much of the same, but it is still nice to look around, and the atmosphere is lovely. It is lined with beautiful medieval buildings, in such great condition. It's lovely...More

Although Tallinn Town Hall square is in many ways similar to other squares around Europe, its compact size and human scale make it particularly attractive. Lots of things to see and do though.
