Flag of Estonia  ,
Friday, August 20, 1999

Arrived in Estonia after going through customs and getting my first stamp in my passport as I was in a non EU country, about time! After deciding my hostel couldn't possibly be inside the old walled town, I ended up getting myself more than lost before discovering it was inside the old walled town. I eventually arrived at the 'Barn', jumped in the shower and then headed straight out to check out Tallinn by night. A mix of darkened alleys brought to life by brightly coloured architecture and a bustling nightlife greeted me. Later that night I ended up in the 'Jumping' bar which to my surprise sold Steinlager a kiwi beer.
I got up the next morning early so I could see the sights without my backpack. It was well worth the effort as the streets, first empty were lit up by the ever-increasing light and warmth of the new day sun.



The Inside of the domed church was unbelievable and has to be seen to be believed. I visited all the cobblestone streets of Tallinn and by midday had checked out most of what I wanted to see.
Anyway it was once again to jump onto another short bus ride to Tartu.

Re: Well...
Hey there thanks for the comment. At the time of my first visit to Estonia it wasn't part of the E.U. Estonia has been a member of the European Union since 1 May 2004 and of NATO since 29 March 2004. It is however an awesome place. Cheers-Jag
