Viru Gates Reviews
タリン旧市街の観光ルートは人それぞれだと思いますが、私はフェリーターミナルを下りたら真っ先にこのヴィル門を目指して、ヴィル門スタートが一番良いと思います。この門をくぐるとまさに「魔女の宅急便」の世界が始まります。 more »I think that the tourist route of Tallinn Old Town is different for each person, but I think that the first time I go down the ferry terminal, I aim for this ville gate, and the start of ville gate is the best. When you pass through this gate, the world of "Witch's Delivery Service" begins.
These impressive gates are one of the entrances you can use to explore Old Town. Their stonework and architecture is something to view. more »
Good little attraction to spend a little time on it. Close at 5pm. 3 euro pp to access which is affordable. Good view to the old town after climbing up the wall. It’s 2(3?) km long. Good little exercise.
Wow. Such a picturesque place to visit. The medieval entrance to the city that is so well preserved and important to the modern city of Tallinn too. An idea spot for photographs, only a short walk from some of the best preserved sections of the medieval city wall with fantastic views of the city too. Well worth a visit.
