Toompea Castle

Interesting
This castle presents two separate frontages. On the west it is a medieval fortress, built in 1224 by the Danes, at the time new masters of Tallinn. On the square it is an 18C palace with a pink façade... Each is an expression of power. It is today the seat of the Estonian parliament; the national flag flies from Piik Hermann, a 45m-high tower dominating the castle.
