Danish King’s Garden is a miniscule park just next to Toompea in the Tallinn old town. According to the legend, Danish got their red white flag from the sky on July 15th, 1219 — they were loosing in a battle, and the flag helped them to win it. Danish ruled Tallinn and northern Estonia for over a hundred years after the victory.
Nowadays the garden is really nice and quiet spot in the old town. It has magnificent views towards the city, and the garden itself is quite a sight. The trees cast shadows, so the garden is refreshingly cool place during hot summer months.
Note that the garden is accessible by foot only.
