  • !4th Century Castle

    We enjoyed our excursion here; a little bit kitschy, but overall a positive and educational experience. The castle is in pretty good shape for its age and it's easy to get a feel for what it was...

  • Average

    The castle and entertainment are pretty average. We went with the Norwegian excursion and it was not worth our time. Although Historic Tallinn is small believe the way time could have been better...

  • A bit of history

    Well if you want to get a taste of life 700 years ago in Estonia, go to this castle. Great exhibits, not crowded and a bit of history of torture!
