More Tallinn

Hello again. I thought I had just a few more photos of Tallinn, but turns out I have fifteen. Believe me when I say I could have taken hundreds more. Might be a good thing our time was limited. 🙂

Moving away from Town Hall Square, we walked quickly through the medieval streets. Make that cobblestone streets. They’re lovely and durable, but are hard on the feet and knees after a few hours.

I do love this mint color that kept cropping up all through the trip.

The white building in the middle, the Peppersack restaurant, dates back to 1370! It has been rebuilt, but still has a pepper sack hanging in front.

Not sure how old this building is, but I like the architecture and colors.

Really wish we’d had time to visit some of the churches.

Probably the nicest-looking McDonald’s I’ve seen.

Across the way, shops were built into the ancient wall.

Even though it was a beautiful day, this woman was probably cold sitting in the shade of a stone wall. Lots of sweaters and handmade goods for sale.

These look more like residences.

Just beyond the wall were these flower stalls. They had gorgeous stuff:

I’ve photographed a lot of roses, but have never seen this variegated one before.

Would have loved a bunch of these.

Great weekend, everyone!

    Gorgeous place, absolutely charming!

  2. How cool that the shops are built right into the old city wall. It reminded me just a bit of the shops added on the Ponte Vecchio in Florence. Might as well put what you have to good use. 🙂
