Tallinn, Estonia

Photos from Tallinn, the capital of Estonia and one of my favourite cities.

Most of the photos are from July 2011. I visit Tallinn occasionally, so might add pics onto this thread later on. I chose to include pics from various parts of the city, as there are many interesting areas and sights outside the city center and the beautiful but somewhat touristy Old Town.






















Photos by me.

Thank you, MightyKC!

I have a tendency for certain stillness and quietness with my photos, whether cityscapes or something of a more abstract nature. I do realise that some of the street shots look like a ghost town... That is deceiving though: In reality, Tallinn is a vibrant, busy city. Also, some of the shots were taken very early in the morning when the streets were still quiet.

Really cool photos,Paperbird! It's nice to see,that someone actually visits non-touristic parts of Tallinn.

Oh,and if you haven't already done so,then visit SSC Nordic & Baltic. Your photos will be appreciated there too
