"Tallinn Town Hall" Town Hall - Raekoda Tip by Avieira67

Town Hall - Raekoda, Tallinn: 29 reviews and 60 photos

This building, built in 1404, is the only surviving Gothic Town Hall in Northern Europe, and is one of the most famed symbols of Tallinn.
In 1402-1404, the building was substantially reconstructed. The exterior we know today dates from this period, and the basic room plan has also been preserved, as it was reconstructed for hosting receptions.
The second floor was and still is the main floor, where the Citizen`s Hall, the Council Hall, a small kitchen and chancery are located and where festive receptions and concerts are held, just as they were in the Medieval days of yore. The three-nave cellar hall is open to citizens and guests today as an exhibit hall.
