Tallinn Old Town Days invite to free tours in the Riigikogu building, Stenbock House, and Tall Hermann Tower.

During the first weekend of June, the Old Town Days in Tallinn invite everyone to participate in free tours and excursions. Among others, there will be tours in the Riigikogu building, Stenbock House, and on June 4th, Flag Day, in Tall Hermann Tower.

Experienced guides will introduce the history and architecture of the Riigikogu building, Toompea Castle, and Stenbock House. The guided tours in Estonian and English last approximately 60 minutes and are free of charge for participants. Pre-registration is required on the website vanalinnapaevad.ee.


In addition to historical buildings, there will also be tours organized in green areas and parks. Two biodiversity tours will take place in the bastion zone, focusing on the biodiversity in the urban environment – how different plants, insects, birds, and animals are connected and why it is important to let nature thrive undisturbed. The walks will be conducted by Eliko Petser, a methodologist from Tallinn Botanic Garden.

During the Old Town Days, also the Ukrainian Cultural Center opens its doors. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the Grusbeke Tower in the Chapel of the Virgin Mary, visit the Toy Museum, Hildegard’s Yard, and the mechanical toy theater “Moralite.” The Ukrainian Society will also provide insights into the workings of the Labora Crafts Workshop. Tours are available in Estonian and Russian.

There will be a variety of guided tours throughout the three days. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town showcases remarkable new buildings constructed in the area over the past few decades. The “New Old Town” tour examines architectural works from the second half of the 1980s to the present day. Visitors can also explore the sacred sites with their long and fascinating history in the Holy Spirit Church and Oleviste Church, and guided tours will be held in the House of the Blackheads. The Old Town Days program will be conculded with the ghost stories tour by Jaak Juske.
