Tallinn Town Hall, the only surviving gothic town hall in Northern Europe, has been the heart of the city throughout the centuries. The building obtained its present Gothic appearance in 1402-1404. For centuries resolutions regarding the city have been adopted in the Council Hall and magnificent feasts have been enjoyed in the Citizens’ Hall. The glory and wealth of the former hanseatic town lives on in these halls. Old Thomas, the popular symbol of Tallinn, has guarded on top of the Town Hall spire for almost five hundred years.
