On the east side of the Lower Town you can find the twin towers of Viru gate, which are the only remaining vestiges of the original medieval gate system built in the 14th century. Today the two towers elegantly flank Viru street, which leads you into the old town along the beautiful and busy shopping street.

Address: Viru, 10140 Tallinn
Directions: Walk east from the main square, and down Viru Street, towards the great white Hotel Viru.
