Tallinn is one of the best-retained medieval European towns with its web of winding cobblestone streets, which developed in the 11th to 15th centuries, preserved nearly in its entirety. The Old Town of Tallinn has been inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The golden era in Tallinn's history lies in the period between the early 15th and mid 16th centuries. Tallinn had attained fame and a powerful role in the Baltic Sea area through its membership in the Hanseatic League. A walk through Tallinn's Old Town brings a heightened understanding of the rich history of the town, as well as a mysterious sense of the atmosphere of the old days, a unique chance to experience the layers of time.
