Tallinn & Estonia photos

Just back from a trip, visiting friends in Finland. Popped over to Estonia whilst I was there.

A few pics of Tallinn.

This is the inside of old Tallinn's citadel wall, with some market stalls set in to it.

The sun is low at this time of year, so not that good for photos.

A gate house, dates from the 17th century, IIRC.

No, it's a straight photo! It would be a very old building, and listed/protected.

You can find many buildings like that in Northern Europe and Russia. However many have burnt down, in great fires.

Next I get the bus from Tallinn in to the wilderness, to Tartu. So, 2.5 hours of fields, old wooden farm houses, and plenty of brandy.

The old timber house, in this photo is where I stayed the night with a local couple, and some crazy Finnish hacker I couldn't shake off.

So what you have here is the former Soviet Union, the booze shop. It looks bleak and puts you right off drinking. All the beer is behind the counter.

Then you have all the new construction. This place will be completely changed in 10 years time, with the drab Soviet era eradicted completely. In with the steel and glass.

The market in Tartu.

One of those big sacks of potatoes would set you back about 1 or 2 dollars.

A restored timber house, and some old apartment blocks nearby. Note, they have wood for heating stacked up outside, ready for winter.

Coffee shop in the park, and a nearby bridge type thing which has something to do with the University.

Possibly the most pointless bridge in the world, with crazy Finnish dude getting over excited about it.

Has it any meaning beyond it's pointlessness? They would make it out of rock! Built to last. LOL
