Tallinn Old Town Tour & Secret Bastion Underground Passages
Get two in one – classical tour in Old Town, where all important highlights are included and then spice your experience up with a visit to underground passages.
Visit the secret underground bastion passages and travel with the Time Train into the year 1219.
Classical Old Town tour gives you the best of the Medieval Tallinn – you’ll hear interesting legends, see the most fascinating little streets and will get to know all the most remarkable landmarks in this old Hanseatic town.
After the first part of the tour you will join the group going underground! The old tower Kiek in the Kök is guarding the old passages of the Ingrian and Swedish bastions.These 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.
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. The tour includes a slow-moving train ride, where guests are shown the various stages of the tunnels’ past, and even a few decades into their possible future. The journey ends in the future – the year of 2219.
After being beneath the ground also the city on it seems quite different.
