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.
Pictures were everywhere ,even though it was in the middle of the day without optimal light.
Still on our bicycles on the cobblestones (to the utter delight of Elfreda 🙂 )we made our way towards the town square.
Tiiu left us here to explore the old town and have some drinks and a bite to eat.
Vinyl shop was unfortunately closed.
En toe word ons dors. (And then we got thirsty)
After some more exploring we ended up at a very nice street cafe for lunch.
The food and scenery were top class 🙂
Apologies but she is worth 2 pics 🙂
Back to other delicacies.
Some last exploring and a little shopping before we had to head back to the ship.
We were too lazy to ride back on our bikes to the ship. We decided to get ourselves two taxis to take us back.
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.
Vana Tallinn is sooooo yummy and obviously unobtanium anywhere else 😦
Last pic of a beautifull Estonia girl.
In our next post we will be painting Copenhagen red before we head to one of my top 5 bucket list destinations.
