The centrally located Town Hall Square, still a vibrant gathering place for many cultural events held throughout the year, is home to the only preserved medieval gothic Town Hall in the Baltic and Scandinavian region. In its present form the Town Hall was completed in 1404 and it has still remained the most important representational building in town. Inside the Town Hall it´s possible to see examples of medieval architecture and art. The Town Hall holds oldest and rarest pieces of medieval woodcarving: benches in the Gothic style. The carved side posts of the longer bench, featuring the story of Tristan and Isolde and Samson’s fight with the lion, are some of the most beautiful examples of medieval art in Estonia.
