The city is located on the Finnish Merrbusen, was formerly part of the Hanseatic League and has more than 400,000 inhabitants;. that is a third of Estonia´s total population..
Tallinn´s Old Town «vanalinn» spans essentially the Lower Town and Domberg areas.. It testifies to a multitude of carefully restored and well-preserved buildings from a centuries-long and extremely moving city history..
Founded as a merchant settlement under the name Lindanise in the 10th century, called Reval until 1918, it was converted into a fortified town by the Danes in the 13th century.. Taani linn «in German Dansburg» is the Oldest nickname, from which the modern city name Tallinn can be derived..
In 1285, Reval became connected to the Hanseatic League and developed into a supraregional hub of organized Baltic Sea trade.. In 1346, the city was transferred together with surrounding land to the Teutonic Order..
In 1561, Reval became Swedish-owned.. A very changeable phase of development characterized by rise and chaos began..
