Т

allinn, the oldest capital of Northern Europe, was first marked on the map by the Arab geographer Al-Idris in 1154. The old part of Tallinn, the so-called Old Town, is the most perfectly preserved image of a medieval city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Admirable are the 26 defense towers, the preserved part of the city wall (about 2 km), the Dominican monastery founded in 1246, the Gothic-style 600-year-old town hall, the oldest pharmacy in Europe, located on Town Hall Square and churches.

At the end of the 15th century – the beginning of the 16th century, Olaviste Church with a 159-meter bell tower was the tallest building in the world. In the middle of the city, the towering Toompea Castle, as well as the observation platforms of Olaviste Church and the town hall tower offer unforgettable views of the city. The parliament is now working in 13th-14th century Toompea castle and the national flag is flying in its corner tower, Long Herman.
