Tallinn is the capital of Estonia. The Old Town is located in the scenic haven. Tourist love Tallinn mostly for its medieval atmosphere. Here preserved fragments of city wall with towers, old churches and classic cobbled medieval streets. A lot of interesting sights are located in other Tallinn parts and its suburbs.

Niguliste Church

Niguliste Church - is the only sacral building in Downtown that avoided the destruction caused by the Lutheran Reformation of 1523, as a cunning parochial headman ordered to lead all church’s door-locks, which prevented the furious mob from getting inside.
