Tallinn, Estonia from Above

Tallinn, Estonia At the end of July, after three weeks in Finland, my boyfriend and I took the early morning ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn. We spent the day wandering around Old Town Tallinn. Tallinn, Estonia’s beautiful historic district is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It was built up between 1300 and 1600. There is a big tourist industry catering to visitors in the Old Town, but that doesn’t detract from the charming streets filled, beautiful churches, medieval sites, and cheap beer!

Tallinn, Estonia The close proximity to Helsinki, means that Finns often take the ferry to Tallinn to buy alcohol, which is far less expensive than in Finland (Scandinavia is a $10 beer on tap part of the world). Since we are committed history nerds, we the day visiting every historical site. After  all our wandering around in the heat, we retired to the gloomy cool of Hell Hunt Pub, a cool bar and brewery, where we had the delicious house brews and burgers before catching a bus to Riga, Latvia.
