Step right into the heart of Tallinn's urban center and access the city's historical sights from Viru Gates. The square connects all of the city's major roads and main public transportation lines, and it's a gateway to the old town. Throughout history the square was the city's main gathering place and the center of activity. Reconstruction at the beginning of the 20th century transformed the area into a transportation and shopping hub. Apart from visiting an array of stores, you can stop by a bar or restaurant for refreshment or a fine meal. Browse the surrounding area for a selection of souvenirs and be sure to visit some of the flower shops that the neighborhood is famous for.

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.
