Tallinn

with 2 comments

Tallinn, a major port of long standing, has become a bridge between East and West. Estonians and Tallinners are people with a strong tradition and history. The first known traces of the local population date back 3500 years. City rights were given to Tallinn on May 15, 1248 when the Town Council governed the city and since 2002 Tallinn City Day has been celebrated on this day.

The picturesque Old Town, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, is a unique pearl of medieval architecture accentuated with tall towers. Within a five-minute walk of the city centre there is the modern City where old intermingles with new.

I would personally recommend this city to avid photographers and aficionados of history, culture and architecture.
