ENJOY THE HISTORY

In front of the Maiden Tower the story of the city of Tallinn began in the summer of 1219. This is where the legend of the oldest national flag in Europe – the DANNEBROG – originates. Engaged  in the fierce and glorious battles to defend the city (1577) the tower later was turn into apartment house,  the home for important people and an studio for artists.

In 1970s the tower was restored and a popular café was opened in the building.  In 2012 the café-museum was opened.
