Why locals love it

The Danish King's Garden is the spot where, in 1219, the Danish flag allegedly fell from the sky and led the Danish forces to a victory over the Estonians. We think this sounds an awful lot like a plot from an X-Files episode. While the Danes insist their flag originated from the heavens, we suspect another, a more earthly source - a flag maker?

Why you should visit it

Still, it's a nice story and we suppose we should say "skål" to any Danes reading this. The park itself is lovely too – way nicer than anything ancient Estonians could've come up with. Today, it's a popular hang out. The park is surrounded by the old city wall on one side, and on the other you'll be able to gaze upon the charming Old Town rooftops.

Special tip

It would be the perfect place to enjoy a nice cold brew on a hot summer evening, unfortunately it's illegal... well, just try to be subtle.

One of the most romanic squares in Tallinn old town, especially during the night.
