Tallinn - August 2005

 



The Tallinn town square





No we are not calling each other - just listening to our friendly audio guide!

Tali taking a rest and enjoying the sunshine!



The Niguliste Church from the city walls


The spire of Oleviste Church



...and from closer to the ground.

View of the city walls from the top of the Oleviste Church spire


Tali on the street known as Short Leg which connects Toompea with the Lesser Old Town

The top of the Town Hall which is the only intact Gothic town hall in Northern Europe



The tower bell of Pühavaimu church, made in 1433, is the oldest in Estonia. And the painted clock on its facade is the oldest public timekeeper in Tallinn


 


Tall Hermann. Over the centuries who ever flies their flag over tall Hermann basically rules Estonia. More recently it was the USSR flag that flew until 1991 when Estonia declared independence.


Waiting for their ship to come in


The port where the ships to Norway and Sweden berth.



For some reason Tallinn is famous for its doors.


Unlike most European hotels, the Domina Ilmarine is very spacious and allows for bombarding unsuspecting sisters with missiles from above!


Kadriorg Palace which was built for Catherine The Great.
