Tallinn neighborhoods

Central Tallinn

Mostly pedestrian-friendly, central Old Town is made up of Raekoja Plats, the Town Hall (which sits directly on the plats) and the Puha Vaimu church. The area is an atmospheric maze of cobblestoned streets, medieval churches and gabled merchant houses.

Some of the many tourist attractions of the area include the House of Blackheads, a Dominican Monastery and the majestic Great Sea Gate at the northern end of the neighborhood—all just steps from the Baltic Sea.

Kadrioru Park

Kadrioru Park is a mile and a half east of Tallinn's Old Town. The park itself is expansive enough to include both the Kadriorg Palace and the Estonian Art Museum. Peter the Great's museum is near the palace. Kadrioru Stadium is west of the park and the Baltic Sea is steps away from its northern end.

Kesklinn

Kesklinn is located south of Tallinn's city center. It's known for the Opera House and the Rahuusooper Estonia music hall. Both Tammsaare and Lembitu Parks are located in the area. Tallinn's Old Town and its Raekoja Plats are less than a 20-minute walk from here and the Baltic Sea is a mile away.

Toompea

Located southwest from Old Town, Toompea is a neighborhood marked by the whitewashed Toompark Cathedral, first erected in the 13th-century. The distinctive 15th-century bastion Kiek-in-de-Kok sits just north of the area's Komandandi Street and Toompea Castle is nearby at the head of Lossi Plats.

Central Tallinn is less than a 15-minute walk on foot from nearby Hirvepark; many of the main tourist sights are easily accessed from this neighborhood.
