Toompea Hill, Tallinn

4.7
Home to medieval castle fortifications, a host of churches, and the seat of Estonia's parliament, Toompea Hill has represented the epicenter of power for Tallinn's rulers throughout history. You can make your way from the lower portion of the World Heritage-listed old town to the top of the hill via a long cobbled walkway. You'll pass by a ninth-century fortress that houses the seat of the national government, the Russian Orthodox cathedral, and the 124 m (407 ft) tall church of St. Olaf. For a basic tour of the upper town, follow the remains of the city's walls around their perimeter, stopping for photos at the viewing platforms along the way. See Toompea Hill and all Tallinn has to offer by arranging your trip with our Tallinn journey planner.
