3d Virtual old town Tallinn
This application introduces Tallinn’s Medieval Old Town in new and exciting way. Take in the beautiful walkways, panoramic photos and places full of history all around the Old Town.
In front of you is a three-dimensional model of Tallinn Old Town. Creation of the Tallinn 3D-city was made possible by the Tallinn City Planning Department in cooperation with other municipal departments and partners. The project is funded by the European Union’s Structural Funds under the “Development of Information Society” measure. Tallinn Old Town is one of the two sites in Estonia in the list of UNESCO world heritage. Our aim is to allow anyone interested in this mediaeval pearl to access the Old Town by using modern computing technology. The 3D Old Town application covers a 121-hectare area of the city. The buildings you see in the application are depicted true to life. Besides being visually similar, the buildings are shown to scale and their location is accurate. The virtual eye even extends into courtyards, sculptures and observation platforms. There is a flight simulator for aerial views. The application comes with information on the buildings’ history, architecture and current use, presented while taking tours of the Old Town and through old photographs, videos and audio clips. An extensive information layer helps to find restaurants, cafes and hotels along with other recreational possibilities. An overview map and search functionality assist navigation. The 3D-world is complemented by a viewer of panoramic photos.
If you find yourself wishing to discover the wonderful Old Town of Tallinn for real, sit in its cosy cafes and walk on the mediaeval streets, we urge you to come here. Have an enjoyable virtual experience and we hope to see you in Tallinn!
