City Walls - Tallinn, Tallinn County: 18 reviews and 17 photos


Medieval fortresses, which emerged during the development of the medieval town at the end of the 13th century, surrounded the city centre as a closed defense zone. By the 16th century, Tallinn’s defense system was one of the most powerful in Northern Europe.
The city wall was three meters thick, sixteen meters high, and four kilometers long, completely encircling the city with 46 defense towers. The portion of the wall that has survived is two kilometers long, encompassing 26 of the original towers.
