About Viru Gate, Tallinn

Originally part of a fort wall with watch towers on either side, over time the wall was demolished to connect the city’s Old Market with Kadriorg. The towers still remain along with parts of the Musumagi bastion. The whole wall dates back to the medieval age and still preserves it original architecture and charm.

The nearby Viru street is a bustling center filled with shops and cafes where you can try local food and shop for local goods.

Viru Gate, Tallinn Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of the entrances to the old town. Just inside the gates is one of the only sections of the wall you can walk. Worth the 3 euros.

  • Nice historical atmosphere makes it a pleasent visit

  • I found gifts here I couldn't find elsewhere. Basically this is a souvenir shop. I enjoyed browsing & shopping.

  • Love this old town main gate..very charming. The old town itself takes you to a completely different world 👌👌

  • It is really an amazing place, the gate looks so old and modern at the same time. It's hard to believe that the windows are real and are not just paintings on the wall of the gate.
