CITY TOUR ON REQUEST: “CRIMINAL TALLINN”
On a walk starting from Kiek in de Kök, we talk about the criminal past of ancient Tallinn. We’ll talk about crime and punishment in ancient Reval, tell you about the peculiarities of justice in the city, and walk through places associated with crime and delinquency, places of detention and execution.
Was the Maiden Tower really a prison for prostitutes, as the urban legend says? But where was the infamous so-called Virgin Cage and what was it for? What was the most honourable method of execution and why were men and women put to death differently? There’s much more about the city’s criminal past – stories stretching back to the 20th century.
The walk starts at Kiek in de Kök, from where we move to the Danish King’s Garden and on to Town Hall Square. With those who are up to it, we will walk even further!
*Not recommended for children up to 12 years of age.
Duration up to 1.5 hours.
