Upper Town Tour: Discovering Tallinn's Heart
Hello there! My name is Gleb, and I am passionate about combining various types of cultural heritage. Browsing magnificent cities of the Baltics with a map in your hands is fun, but hearing the stories behind different landmarks enhances your experience and often makes you view the city's landscape from a new angle. After spending a fantastic year as the guide who introduced Tartu's heart to international visitors, I am here to show the multilayered story of Tallinn.
Tallinn offers a great diversity of experiences available to visitors.
While the lower part of the Old Town is packed with various places offering mostly gastronomical entertainment, the Upper Town represents a marvelous attraction for history appreciators.
From here, you can see how large and diverse Tallinn could be.
This tour offers a lovely opportunity to learn many curious facts about Estonia and get familiar with the history of Tallinn's most important landmarks. You will see how different eras of Estonia's development got reflected in local architecture and hear many exciting stories about former residents of the Toompea hill manors.
