A Medieval Old Town – Tallinn(1)

This town built up from the 13th to 16th centuries: Now it is the UNESCO World Heritage site.

In part one of Tallinn showcase, I am presenting some restored ruins in Tallinn.

It is not the honor that you take with you, but the heritage you leave behind.

    I loved visiting Talliin, and would readily go again. Thanks for reminding me of how awesome the city walls are.

        Fabulous photos. Thanks ever so much for the link. I really liked seeing them. Recognized a few of them, particularly those near the narrow pink house, where there is a nice coffee shop in an alleyway. I did not recognize the drawings on the vaulted ceiling. That looked amazing. Where was that located?

    If I am not wrong it was near the pair of ivy-covered towers at the beginning of Viru Street. The main pedestrian arteries into Old Town.
