Little area with some nice gardens, a neat little restaurant that you have to climb these steep narrow old stairs to get to and also these somewhat creepy monk statues. Make sure you stop and check it out.
I found myself there after getting lost on Toompea on my first evening in Tallin and was immediately thrilled by this place.

Photo opp of medieval wall and church. Then steps down one of the ancient passage ways if you chose that way down - past lots of small... 更多
