A Photographic Walk in Tallinn – Part 1

We loved Lithuania. We loved Latvia. What about Estonia? Would we be lucky a third time? The answer is simple. We fell in love with Estonia immediately.

To be honest, Ingrid and I had a bit of luck. The apartment we had rented in Tallinn, wasn’t available at the time of our arrival, but the owner proposed a more luxurious apartment for the same price. Of course, we accepted. And thus, we found ourselves in the center of the Estonian capital and right opposite one of its best restaurants (but more about that later).

And let’s face it, we could not help but fall in love with the narrow (cobbled) streets and the buildings in pastel colors.

Quite a discovery was the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. It dates from the late 19th century and has a richly decorated interior. Ingrid thought it was forbidden to photograph without a flash, but it turned out it was forbidden to take any pictures at all.

After our visit to the Russian Orthodox cathedral, we stumbled upon this viewing platform. I couldn’t handle my fear of heights, luckily Ingrid could.

Even in black and white this city looks so beautiful!

Later this week, I will publish the second part. And yes, the best is yet to come!
