The corner of Aida and Lai is a good place to take some photos, but do take few steps further down the Aida street. This deep forest green door looks like it has a story to tell you.

The door of Kooli 7 is of the beaten path, tucked behind the Gustav Adolf Grammar School. The baby blue door looks lovely on the pale coral residential building.

Famous yellow building with a blue door that just jumps out of the picture is a residential house opposite to the St. Nicholas' Church. While here, visit the next door restaurant, Väike Rataskaevu, for a delicious meal.

Many people pass this door without even noticing it. It seems unbelievable, just look at how gorgeous it is. The pale green door is located in the same building as Rimi market on Pikk street. Don't miss a good photo opportunity!

Next to popular bar, Hell Hunt, is the shop of local artist Helina Tilk. It's one of the best places to shop for Estonian souvenirs, after you have taken a photo with this detailed impressive door.

Probably the most famous pink door in the Europe. It made national news, because the doors in the Old Town are protected. There are strict rules, what are the official original colours that the doors should be, and this door was originally not pink. So hurry and get your snap before it gets painted over.
