These are the gate posts to Tallinn's Old Town. They were built in the 14th century, but the towers that now remain are only part of what was originally here. The Viru Gates are in the eastern section of the city wall. Beyond them the architecture suddendly turns to be completely different and it seems we just jumped back five centuries in time.
