A City Wall With a Surprise

Tallinn’s old city wall has a different kind of construction than other city walls I’ve visited. And I really liked this medieval version. After buying a 3 euro ticket (2015) and climbing some slightly steep stair cases inside one of the towers, you step out onto a nice ledge. The drawback is that this part of the wall is not particularly long with only two towers. But the again I thought it looked like the nicest section we came across around town. The second tower boosts a viewpoint, and to our delightful surprise an art gallery – this time exhibiting some really cool photos. Turned out the whole city wall section constitutes the Helleman Tower Gallery.
