... fine example of museum design. We just had lunch sitting in a gallery looking down on the exhibits & marvelling.
After walking around the yard outside we watched an80ft, 2 masted trading ship pull away & admired an old icebreaker which is being renovated before returning to the hotel, weary but pleased.
After a rest we returned to the old city for dinner at a recommended restaurant where Jane had boiled cabbage & Dick had Elk sausages both of which we enjoyed.
Today we decided to go for a walk around old town. It was really pretty. Houses were very old but nicely renovated and painted in bright colors and streets were made of gobble stones. The old town of Tallinn dates back to 13th century. We stepped inside a really old Lutheran church and also Russian Orthodox church, just to look around and see what it looks like inside. Orthodox church was very ...
... the terminus could not be far away. Sure enough we found a number of buses parked, including a 1A, our bus. It even had the same driver that had brought us into town. We knocked on the door. He opened up. I showed him the slip of paper with our destination bus stop that we got from the campsite. He looked at it. He said something in Estonian. I said 'This bus OK?' He shrugged. We proffered €3.20. He issued tickets. We sat down. Nothing happened. 6 minutes ...

The tower was enormous and from the observation deck not only was there the amazing views (we could see all the way to Finland), there was also these weird robotic pod like displays hanging from the ceiling and coming out of the floor. If you touched them then they swivelled to your location and started giving you all this amazing ...
So last night we decided to go on a bar crawl (which actually consisted of 3 bars!) and we were aiming to end up in Hollywood as it was ladies night and we are, of course, real ladies.
We began at another hostel where the cavemen were playing wizard stick. The guys, or girls if they want, have to drink their height in beer or cider, all the cans get stuck together as their drinking so the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSt Olav Hotel Tallinn
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.
