Food Sightseeing: Medieval Tallinn - a culinary voyage of discovery in the medieval Old Town

Take a trip back in time to when Tallinn was a wealthy city in the Hanseatic league - one which has miraculously preserved its medieval aura right up to the present day! We take you on a stroll along the winding cobblestone streets of the Old Town, recounting legends and stories of medieval life, stopping off for food-tasting along the way – marzipan in the oldest continuously operating pharmacy in Europe; starters at the medieval eatery The Third Dragon; a feast at the Waggehus restaurant; and dessert at the medieval restaurant Olde Hansa, in the setting of an historical rich merchant's home.
