今は国家議事堂として使われているかつてのお城です。中を見学するには時間が決められたツアーに参加しないといけないようです。外観の色合いなんかは日本で国会などに使う雰囲気とはまったく違いますが、こちらだと違和感ないですね。 more »It is a former castle used as a national capitol now. In order to see the inside, it seems to have to take a tour with a fixed time. The color of the appearance is completely different from the atmosphere used in the Diet in Japan, but it is not strange here.
As a fan of Viewpoints, Tallinn knew how to tickle my fancy. At the castle 's viewpoint you get amazing views from the north side of the city. In sunny days it gets even better. Do expect crowds of tourists, but nothing too dramatic. Most are from cruisers tours and they don't linger around for too long. Enjoy!
A must see in Tallinn! Plan the day to see everything and bring good walking shoes.
