In Photos: Tallinn, Estonia

by connal on November 25, 2009


Tallinn seems to have a couple of faces. On one hand, the city center is often compared to Disneyland – there are a number of Medieval restaurants complete with employees dressed in period costumes (however the buildings are genuine Medieval period construction). On the other hand, Estonia was occupied by both the Russians and the Nazis and once you get outside the Old Town city center, you start to see subtle (and not so subtle) traces of the Soviet influence and oppression.  On top of that, there’s a significant modern commercial presence throughout the city. These are just a few photos of the range of scenes you find in the city.
