Tallinn Old Town Days bring a medieval atmosphere to Estonian capital ({{commentsTotal}})

Starting on May 30, the annual Old Town Days will fill the yards, squares, streets and parks of Tallinn Old Town with countless performances, processions, workshops and tours. This year's event follows a theme "Masters through centuries".

The opening show of the 34th Old Town Days by Polygon Theater and Theater-school, titled "Master's play", will start on the Town Hall Square at 20:00 on Saturday evening. But even before, people can enjoy the "Paw walk 2015", a dog parade, featuring tricks and demonstration performance at 13:00, and watch the opening of the renovated Viru Gates and a procession to the Town Hall Square at 19:15, among many other things.

The following days' events are divided up by themes. Sunday is dedicated to Tallinn's churches, Monday to children and Tuesday to health. Following days are dedicated to museums, art and theater, music and finally, on June 6, the "Medieval Day". A full schedule of events is available on the 34th Tallinn Old Town Days website.

Most of the events are free to all. Regular concerts and other events will take place at the Town Hall Square, the Towers Square, the Freedom Square and the Al Bastione restaurant, as well as various other locations.

Tallinn Old Town Days have been organized since 1982. Throughout the week, the streets are filled with people who are wearing ancient clothes to create a medieval atmosphere.
