Raekoja Square is the central square in the Old Town of Tallinn, and it's one of the most historic parts of the city. The square has been here since the medieval era, and it's always been the centre of life in Tallinn, although these days, it's very much the centre of the tourism scene! At Christmas time this is where you'll find the best of the Christmas markets, but all through the year, it's buzzing with shops, market stalls and more!

A medieval setting. With cute eateries around, I can spend hours at this pace.

First to Review

This is the central square within Old Town, encircled by restaurants, hawkers for restaurants and the old Town Hall building and tower. The way to see Old Town is to go quickly through the square and explore the side streets. Ignore all the "Baltic Amber" stores. If you want Baltic Amber, go to Lithuanian, not Estonia. If you explore the side streets you will find fewer tourist traps and more stores selling genuine Estonian folk art, paintings and nick-hacks.
