The Guinness World Records have now been officially recognised as the most iconic city walls in the world, according to Guinness World Record holder and Guinness World Champion Winston Reid.
In a statement released on Friday, Guinness World Magazine announced that the tallest walls in all of the world were erected by the Estonian city of Tallinn.
The wall in Tallinn stands at 3,000 metres high, making it the tallest in the whole world, Guinness said.
According to Guinness, the walls are built to withstand earthquakes, which have happened in Tallin more than a dozen times.
They have also survived floods, earthquakes and landslides, Guinness added.
Tallinn is known for its stunning architecture, and the city is home to more than 100 historical monuments, including the city’s iconic Tower of Babel.
It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and UNESCO World Place.
The Tallinn wall has also been featured in other international media.
In September last year, the Tallinn Wall Museum showcased the wall’s impressive beauty as part of its “City Walls” series.
