One of the finest medieval Old Towns in all of northern Europe is right here in Tallinn. Explore this marvelous living relic on foot as you disembark your motor coach near the walls and towers that once guarded the town from invasion. Walk up Toompea Hill to the wide Palace Square. At the top stands Toompea Palace—a Baroque structure used by the Estonian parliament. Step into the amazing Russian Orthodox Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, whose glorious mosaics and icons will impress and inspire you. The massive cathedral dominates the entire skyline of the Upper Town. The Dome Church, formerly St Mary's Cathedral, is your next destination, as you wander down narrow cobblestone streets to the church where more than one hundred Coats of Arms are on display. For a true orientation overview of the town, look out over the rooftops of the Lower Town from a scenic viewpoint. Shop at street stalls and small stores, then head down Short Leg Street to the Town Hall Square. You will have some free time to take in the Gothic Town Hall, stroll through the handicraft stalls, or enjoy a refreshment (at your own expense). A medieval concert is performed at St Nicholas Church before you walk back to your motor coach in central Tallinn.
On Sunday calls, inside visits to Dome Church are not possible due to religious services being held. The walk includes cobblestone streets and many steps to access the churches.
