This eatery on the border of Kalamaja and Pelgulinn serves Vietnamese food in portacabins. Its appearance is anything but traditional and the interior is rather undemanding. Guests are invited to try fast food made from Vietnamese cuisine in the two portacabins stacked on top of each other.

Open since 1422, this curious little shop on the corner of Town Hall Square is in fact the oldest continuously running pharmacy in Europe. Medieval remedies like burnt bees and powdered unicorn horn have been replaced by their 21st century counterparts, but one room in the back displays a collection of medicinal bric-a-brac from bygone days.

Picturesque Town Hall Square has been the undisputed hub of Old Town for the last eight centuries. Surrounded by elaborate merchant houses and, in summer, packed with café tables, it's a natural magnet for tourists. Historically it served as a market and meeting place, and was the site of at least one execution (resulting from a dispute over a bad omelette). Find the round stone marked with a compass rose in the middle of the square. From this spot, with a little stretching and bending, you can see the tops all five of Old Town's spires. Today, the square remains the social heart of the city, a venue for open-air concerts, handicraft fairs and medieval markets.

Make the vigorous climb to the top of Tallinn's iconic, Gothic church, once the tallest building in the world. Once upon a time, from 1549 to 1625 to be precise, this Gothic church was the tallest building in the World. But it’s gigantic, 159-metre spire, meant as a signpost for approaching ships, also turned out to be a very effective lightning rod. Nowadays its smaller, 124-metre spire still dwarfs most of Tallinn’s buildings and remains an important symbol of the town. From April to October, visitors can make the vigorous climb to the top of the stone portion of the tower for magnificent and dizzying views of Old Town, Toompea hill and the port area.

This massive, 38m-high cannon tower houses an extensive museum of the town's fortifications, weapons and medieval-era life. Anyone interested in walls, towers, cannons and the like should drop into the tower-turned-museum. In addition to examples of medieval firepower, there are displays detailing how the city's system of walls and towers developed through the centuries as well as exhibits covering crime and punishment and other facets of life in the Tallinn of old. Kiek in de Kök is also the starting place for visitors interested in the fascinating system of hidden tunnels (Bastion Passages) that run underneath the old bastions of Toompea hill.

The unforgettable Seaplane Harbour is home to a super-modern maritime and military museum, complete with historic ships to tour. Located in Tallinn's famed, wooden-house district of Kalamaja, the harbour is best known for its architecturally unique Seaplane Hangars. Built almost a century ago, in 1916 and 1917, as a part of Peter the Great sea fortress, these hangars are the world’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size. Charles Lindbergh, the man who performed the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean, landed here in the 1930s. Now the vast hangars house an extensive, high-tech museum telling exciting stories of Estonia's maritime and military history.

By far the nation's largest and most cutting-edge art museum, Kumu displays Estonian-created works from the 18th-21st centuries. A must-see for culture creatures, Kumu, the main building of Art Museum of Estonia, serves both as Estonia's national gallery and as a centre for contemporary art. The complex itself is a work of art - it was opened in 2006 after nearly a decade of planning and construction, and is considered a modern architectural masterpiece. Curves and sharp edges mark out the copper and limestone structure, which is built into the side of a limestone cliff.
