Tallinn Town Hall

Tallinn Town Hall is the oldest city hall in North-Europe and the only preserved one in Gothic style. The story of the building dates back to the 13th century and it was completed, in its current form, in 1404. The town was ruled from the Town Hall for nearly 700 years. The Town Hall still has its historical role of being the town's representational building and it is used for carrying out receptions and concerts. In July and August, the Town Hall is open to visitors, who can visit anything from the basement to the attic.

The fancy Gothic arches and precious works of art reflect the wealth and ideals of the former Hanseatic town. The rarest items are the benches of aldermen from the 14th and 15th century.
