Old Town Tallinn preserves well its historic look and feel. Over half of its thick defensive walls still stand along with 20 of its original 46 towers, which now house cafes, museums, and galleries. The old town is divided into upper and lower sections, each significant to Tallinn's history and development. For the best views of Old Town Tallinn, take advantage of viewing platforms on Castle Hill, where church steeples, tiled roofs, and lofty towers, as well as the sea beyond, can be gazed upon and photographed.
