A short stay in Tallinn

Published (updated: ) in places.

We recently took a few weeks off for a spectacular journey to Russia, via Finland and Estonia.

OK, we didn’t see anything of Finland except Helsinki airport. We flew there from London, then transferred to a turboprop aircraft for a short hop across the Baltic sea to the capital of Estonia, Tallinn.

Tallinn was really pretty, and I wished we’d had more time to explore it. Lots of beautiful buildings, lots of narrow old streets. Bells ringing, and bars to hang out in.

Tallinn was just the first stop on a longer journey. From there, we caught the sleeper train to St Petersburg.
