Tallinn Town Hall

Nothing says power like the impressive Gothic Town Hall that dominates medieval Tallinn's main square. It was built in 1402–04 as a meeting place for the ruling burgomeisters and has been a showpiece of the city ever since. Nowadays the Town Hall — the only intact Gothic town hall in Northern Europe — is used mainly for concerts or for entertaining visiting kings or presidents. From June to August, visitors can climb up the 64-meter tower to get some amazing Old Town views, or head down to the cellars for the occasional exhibition.
