City Wall

Once upon a time the whole city of Tallinn fitted inside the city walls. Which surrounded the castle and provided protection to the churches and merchant houses of the medieval city. During the 1500s the wall was 2.4 km long, 14-16 feet high and consisted of 46 towers. The majority of the wall and about half of all the defence towers have survived till today. Several of the towers are open to the public.
