architecture, history, traveling

Tallinn Old Town (part 1).

Hi there – and welcome to the first actual post on the ‘Tallinn series’!

This is the view after a short walk from the D Terminal’ where at least some of the boats from Helsinki and Stockholm arrive. On the far left you may already see one of the church towers of the Old Town. Okay, there might be easier ways to get yourself there but as an old-fashioned countryside girl I’ve just always headed into that direction.

A touristic restaurant boat with some interesting historic artefacts turned into show pieces.

For me it’s always fascinating to observe how the man-made architecture and nature elements are tightly twisted around each other in every part of any given old town.

Many countries have their embassies located in the Old Town of Tallinn!

Absolutely loving this particular shade of green.

We had a lovely lunch (or late dinner) at a Ukrainian restaurant located on the right side of this street.
