Why locals love it

One of the most medieval looking alleys in the whole of Tallinn, complete with giant old tombstones hanging on the walls. If we locals sometimes forget that Tallinn is totally medieval, this street definitely reminds us.

Why you should visit it

It can be a little tricky to find it. You need to be walking north on Vene street while scanning the walls to your right for a small gateway. If you reach the Kloostri Ait restaurant, then you need to turn around and try again. If you're stealthy enough you'll catch the little artisan shops that have no time to run and hide anymore.

Special tip

Pierre chocolaterie! For sure!

Lovely spot out of the wind. The best hot chocolate! A string quartet when we visited and gorgeous craft shop.
