Baltic Cruise — Tallinn, Estonia Part 4


Tallinn, Estonia

Many of today’s photographs were taken in or near Tallinn’s old Town Square (Raekoja plats), site of the Tallinn Town Hall built in 1404.

The great thing about this area of Tallinn is, of course, the wealth of architectural detail:

Baltic Cruise — Tallinn, Estonia Part 3


Tallinn, Estonia

Traipsing around Tallinn is a fun experience. There is much to take in, as well as photograph. Whitewashed buildings with colorful banners, for example:

Then there are the silent monks haunting the Danish King Garden:

Turn the corner around Town Hall and you might even see a green dragon acting as a downspout:

Of course, there’s always some place to stop for a quick bite, and outdoor European cafés are great for that, as any pigeon will tell you:

Candid street photography is always fun:
