Streets of Tallinn - Pikk Street (Pikk Tänav)

One of the things I enjoy doing most whenever I'm in Tallinn is to simply stroll around the Old Town and take in its beauty.  You never know what you might find. Tallinn has many fascinating streets each with its own unique character and piece of history. The more you explore them, the more you come to appreciate them and of course the best way to do so is on foot.   Pikk Street is one such street in Tallinn with a lot to offer.  Take a stroll down this enchanting cobbled street and see for yourself.
