Tallinn on foot

A wall divides medieval and modern in Tallinn, as I found out during the other half of the guided tour on foot.

Inside the wall:
Upper old town –  some russian and german influence.

Outside the wall:
Modern influence. Understand that no new buildings are allowed to be built in the old town.

It’s interesting to see two worlds inside and outside the wall, in Tallinn old town.
