Travel Blogs from Tallinn
TALLINN with 435,000 inhabitants is the capital and largest city of Estonia (1.3 million). It is situated on the northern coast of the country on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, 80 miles south of Helsinki.

Unfortunately, I got there just as ...

Our last stop was a cemetery used from 1917-1991 for test pilots who didn't make it back to the nearby air base. On these country outings I saw two storks, something I don't see at home!
One day I took the train to Tartu. It was a nice, ...
