Toomemagi

The spectacular Toomemagi is located in the west of the Municipal Square and its scenery is just like the British park in the 19th century. On the top of the mountain, you are able to see the site of Toomkirik in the 13th century, and now the history museum of the University of Tartu. At the summit, there is also the Inglisild, where you can overlook the whole city.

The Tallinn Town Hall

The Tallinn City Hall, located next to the Raekoja Plats, was built in the early 14th century and was a Gothic building. The symbol of the Tallinn—the guardian, Thomas, has been standing on the rooftop of the Town Hall since 1530. You can overlook the city if you climb up to the tower. The Old Town Days usually last four days in June each year, when the square and the Town Hall become active due to the stalls, concerts, dances and the medieval-themed Carnival.

St Mary's Cathedral

It is a cathedral church located on Toompea Hill in Tallinn, Estonia. Due to the constant renovation and reconstruction, the church displays the mixed style. The main building of the church was built in the 14th century, however, the baroque tower top was added in the late 1970’s. Historically, it was the church of the German nobility and gentry, which can be clearly confirmed by the exquisite coat of arms of the nobility and the tombstone in the church.
