“Towers' Squaregets its name from the Town Wall towers that border one of its sides, and the fact that a number of the church spires can be seen from here. In 1931-33 the square was turned into communal park. The area was refurbished in 1990 and a circular plaza was added in 2009. Now the square boasts playgrounds for children and fitness areas. With nearly 2km of its original city wall still standing, Tallinn boasts one of Europe’s best preserved Medieval fortifications. In fact, a large part of what gives Old Town its fairytale charm is the system of walls and and towers that surrounds it.”
