About House Of The Blackheads, Tallinn

Dating back to the 14th century, the House of the Blackheads headquarters was formerly used for the functioning of an association for merchants, ship-owners and traders. The building’s elaborate entrance door and external architecture is only the tip of the iceberg and if you are lucky to see the interiors during a live event here, do take time to see the vaulted hall that dates back to the 15th century.

On other days, a walk around the premises to see the Renaissance elements, is still pretty interesting.
