This tour will first take you to discover the underground Bastion passages. The old tower Kiek in the Kök is guarding the old passages of the Ingrian and Swedish bastions. Kiek in de Kök, was the mightiest artillery tower in the Baltics, built in 15th century. Today the museum exhibits the history of town’s fortifications and history of crime and punishment in old Tallinn.

The tunnels have a fascinating history. They were built in the 1670s, but hardly used until the 20th century when they renovated into bomb shelters in time for World War II. During the Soviet period they were further modernized to add electricity, running water, ventilation and phones.

The massive walls surrounding the passages and the vaulted ceiling are made of limestone. The galleries itself are up to 2.5 m wide and up to 3m in height. The passages were been built on top of the ground, but as the street level is a bit higher nowadays as well as the passages are covered with such a huge mass of earth, people tend to refer to these as ‘underground’ passages. On the tunnel tour, visitors can see some of the old equipment leftover from that era, as well as parts of the tunnel that still retain their more medieval look.

After being beneath the ground we will admire the picturesque Lower Town, the fortified medieval Town Wall with many towers, the impressive over 600 year old Gothic Town Hall, the Town Hall Square and Town Council Pharmacy, which is the oldest continuously functioning pharmacies in the Europe.

This interactive tour is designed to present you with a interesting overview of our old town´s history and architecture.
