Tallinn - 14th May

Hello folklings!

After a cold and rainy week here in Finland, I decided to cheer up my mood with a one day visit to Tallinn.


6:30 a.m.
Hopping off from the bus at the Lahti market square. I headed straight to the railway station where the train was departing to Helsinki at 7:11 a.m.


The weather was sublime.


8:30 a.m.
After reaching Helsinki, I strolled along the streets to Jätkäsaari (disctrict).








9.20 a.m.
I have reached West Harbour Terminal. The ship seen in the picture is not the one I'm taking, that one sails to Saint Petersburg.

The ferry departed 10:45, a bit later than it was supposed to because some trouble at the car deck.






The back portion of the ferry was great. Lots of natural light coming trough the glass ceiling and an big sea view.

00:50 p.m.
The last time I visited Tallinn was 9 years ago. Back then I stayed overnight at Hotel Metropol. The surrounding area was full of beautiful ramshackle industrial buildings on a huge mud/gravel parking lot. Nowadays the area looks absolutely swanky.





I was particularly happy that the green building on the right has been renovated.

A memorial for the 852 people who lost their lives when MS Estonia sank on the night of 28 September 1994.

Great thread, fine city! The ferry between this two capitals is very enjoyable, I remember. And Tallin is a natural beauty with a very relaxed feeling.
