At the end of the street called Pikk jalg, you can see one of the gates of the medieval city of Tallin, the so called Long Leg Gate Tower. It is dated back to XIV. century and was one of the two gates, which linked the nobles' upper town to the commoners. The other was the Short Leg Gate and both were closed every night.
In the background you can see a detail of XIII. century's St.Olav’s Church, the tallest church in Medieval Europe. Now its height is 123,7m. It was named after the Norwegian king Olav II Haraldsson, canonised as a saint and was considered to be the protector of seafarers.
