Home to medieval castle fortifications, a host of churches, and the seat of Estonia's parliament, Toompea Hill has represented the epicenter of power for Tallinn's rulers throughout history. You can make your way from the lower portion of the World Heritage-listed old town to the top of the hill via a long cobbled walkway. You'll pass by a ninth-century fortress that houses the seat of the national government, the Russian Orthodox cathedral, and the 124 m (407 ft) tall church of St. Olaf. For a basic tour of the upper town, follow the remains of the city's walls around their perimeter, stopping for photos at the viewing platforms along the way.

Toompea Hill Reviews
A good uphill climb on cobbles which can be slippy but well worth it for the views across the city. Street artists showing painting as you walk up, good prices. more »
アレクサンドル・ネフスキー聖堂周辺には3つの展望台があり、その高台となっているのがこのトーンペアの丘です。ここは必見の場所なので是非行ってください。 more »There are three observation decks around Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, and the hill of this tone pair is the height. This is a must-see place, so please go there.
It is small hillock 10 minutes walking from Old town. Has estonian patliament and Alexander Church here. The viewpiints of old city are must go on this hillock.roads are made of paving stones and can be difficult if you have a baby and stroller. Whole hillock can be explored on foot.
If you go up to the hill before the sun starts to set, the view from the hill gives you a wonderful view and opportunity to get a shot of Old Town Tallinn. Of course you can go up to the hill whenever you please, but the setting sun actually casts a shadow over the viewing platform, which means there's a pesky shadow.
