Tallinn is the capital city of Estonia and one of the coolest cities I have visited recently. The Old Town is quite small and compact and that makes it easy to walk it all in a short time. As usual in the Baltic countries, all downtown is medieval.
This is the main square, where the city hall is. It is quite nice and houses are beautiful.
And these are three typical houses. Nice, isn't it!
And the walls of the city. This is one of the coolest things in town. A complete ancient wall with turrets!!
And the view over downtown from a nearby hill (where the Parliament and the Cathedral are).
And this is Alexander Nevski church, just in front of the Parliament.
And a nice old street near my hostel.
Tallinn even has a beach near downtown! Pirita is its name. But as you can see, the main problem is still the weather... Estonia is very much in the North!!!
