Brilliant. This place is a palace, literally. The decor is a nice mix between the medieval old structures and bricks, mixed in with modern renovations. Room's are spacious and the king size bed is more than comfortable. Excellent location, a minute walk to the centre of the old town. It would be difficult to top this place in terms of location and quality.

... existence of a McDonald's by one of the gates. Helsinki is a much younger city by comparison hence no medieval section. There are many large churches in the old Tallinn although the Estonian population is largely non-religious today.

Had a nice dinner around 8pm at the Reval Cafe where I sat and read a bit while enjoying a pint of local dark beer. Wandered a bit more before getting back to the hostel after dark. Would love to know exactly how far I walked today as I'm feeling quite tired tonight. Need to get a good night's sleep for my ride tomorrow.

Another point of interest, most of the castle was made of rocks and limestone. You see many areas made of limestone in Estonia. Comparing it to granite it is not as solid or strong but is much more durable.
Estonia is well worth a visit, and although they are not greatly social by nature we did cross some that were social and had a great sense of humour.
... the ferry terminal. I arrived at the Hostel, Fat Margaret's it's called, and once I'd unloaded my gear I asked the hostel manager for a dinner recommendation. She pointed out a few places on the map, so I went walking. I visited all the momuments, took all the photos, reviewed all the menus and decided on the place called Kompressor which makes nothing but pancakes - savoury and sweet. Not very Estonian, but at 4.5E each I can't say no to pancakes. But it was only 6:30pm and ...
... why there was a museum about alcohol. His knowledge was fantastic. He told story of the Swiss and Estonian born owners who initially opened a vodka factory in Moscow in 1910. He told their history while we had a glass of wine. We paid 5€ for the glass of wine and his story of the history. The museum downstairs was really cool. Set up like an old style bar with old bottles of alcohol and chairs for enjoying a drink. A great ...
