City Breaks Tallinn, hoofdstad van Estland.

Tallinn ligt aan de noordelijke kust van het land, aan de oevers van de Golf van Finland. Het oude centrum van de stad staat op de UNESCO werelderfgoedlijst.

De prachtig bewaard gebleven oude stad is verdeeld in twee gebieden, met de oudste gebouwen op Toompea Hill, waar een deel van de oude stadsmuur nog steeds staat en vanaf de forttorens is er een prachtig uitzicht. Het oude stadhuis en de levendige bars op het stadhuisplein zijn de belangrijkste attractie in de benedenstad

Als 'Culturele Hoofdstad van Europa 2011' worden een groot aantal culturele evenementen en festivals gehouden, waaronder de "Maritime Dagen van Tallin", die de stad weer dichter bij de zee [onder het thema "Verhalen van de zee"] brengen.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Tallinn  -  Capital city Estonia
Estonia's capital Tallinn retains much of its medieval heritage, with its ancient city wall, cobblestones and torch-lit streets. Watching over the city since 1530 is Vana Toomas (Old Thomas) – the weather vane atop the Town Hall's tower and the famous symbol of Tallinn.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Freedom Square Tallinn
In summer of 2009 the residents of Tallinn were given back a vital piece of their city's heritage: Freedom Square (Vabaduse väljak). From the last days of the Tsars and through Estonia's first period of independence , this open area at the edge of Old Town had been a place of national symbolism and civic pride, as well as a favourite public gathering spot.
Blauw vierkantje - illu Kadriorg Palace  -  Sample the delights of Catherine's Valley
This magnificent northern baroque palace, built by Peter the Great for his wife, Catherine I, in 1718 was designed by Italian architect Niccolo Michetti, The grandiose palace and surrounding manicured gardens are a humbling example of Tsarist extravagance. See Kadriorg Art Museum.

St. Catherine's is a narrow walkway that runs between Vene and Müürivahe streets, along the back of what used to be St. Catherine's Church. It's home to the St. Catherine's Guild, a collection of craft workshops where artists use traditional methods to create and sell glassware, hats, quilts....
Blauw vierkantje - illu St Olav's Church & tower  -  Oleviste kogudus
Once upon a time, from 1549 to 1625 to be exact, this 13th-century church was the tallest building in the world. But its gigantic, 159-metre spire, which was probably meant to act as a signpost for approaching ships, also turned out to be a very effective lightning rod.

Blauw vierkantje - illu Toompea Castle  - Presidential seat
 Perched on a limestone cliff and towering over the rest of the city, Toompea Castle has always been the seat of power in Estonia.

Today, appropriately, it's home to Estonia's Parliament. See Riigikogu - The parliament of Estonia.
