Hi all, I'm back with another cruise post, this time about Tallinn, Estonia.

Estonia was previously part of the former Soviet Union and is now part of the EU. In the lower photo the cruiseship is visible in the distance.

The old city is a UNESCO Heritage Site.

Tallinn was first put on a map in 1154 and in 1219 became known by its German name Reval.

It became known as Tallinn in 1918-1920 when Estonia became independent.

The old town dates back to the 1200's and is a wonderful example of Medieval walled city.

The old town is easily seen on foot.

It is an awesome spot to purchase woolens and linens.

And see amazing old  architecture.

Even if some is partially in ruins.

Love the arches still visible here.

And a view that takes you back in time.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you've enjoyed your tour of Tallinn.
