Euro trip – Tallinn (Part 2)

The old town of Tallinn with its cobblestone roads, narrow alleys and hidden little shops.

An explorers dream.

Obviously a place filled with tourists.

A place I would love to spend a night at to get lowlight photos of.

Maybe some day.

Tallin was founded in 1248 (jip 400 years before Jan Van Riebeeck landed in Cape Town) and is one of the oldest capitol cities in Europe.

Tallin is one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world.

Back at the harbour we had a last traditional Tallinn drink before we set food on deck for the last leg of our boat cruise back to Copenhagen.
