Tallinn's Medieval Residential Houses

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

One of the most charming features of Tallinn's Old Town are the gabled, medieval residential houses that line its streets. 

There are dozens that are worthy of a shapshot or two, but among the most striking of these are famous Three Sisters at Pikk 71, a trio of wonderfully restored houses dating from the 15th century.

Though all these houses are unique, the medieval dwellings tend to follow the same basic interior design: The ground floor is taken up by a large front room that was a kitchen and workshop. Behind it was the living quarters, and all the upper rooms were used for storage.

To get a peek at the interior of a typical medieval residential house, you can visit the City Museum at Vene 17. Equally, you can duck into the Peppersack restaurant at Viru 2/Vanaturu 6, or the St. Patrick's Pub at Suur-Karja 8, both of which have classic, medieval layouts.
