      A good day in Tallinn - Day 5

      A travel blog entry by blackie_me on Aug 28, 2014

      ... I love Tallinn Old Town, one of my favorites, but I just can't seem to find my way around. Anyways, I visited the Great Coastal Gate and Fat Margaret (Paks Margareeta); characterized as "fat" due to its width.

A young boy took us in and showed us to the small crafts exhibition in the basement. The church was tiny but quaint and the young lad was very friendly and kind.

We both thought that he was pretty insane to want to swim in the literally freezing cold water (at this point a light snow was beginning to fall).
