Destination Joy 2008: Tallinn, ESTONIA

Tallinn is a jumble of medieval walls and turrets, needing spires and winding cobbled streets as you will see in photos.  Tallinn is the capital of Estonia and is located only 53 miles by sea from Helsinki, Finland.  Estonia is roughly 45,230 square miles, the size of New Hampshire and Vermont combined.  Estonian is the official language.  Estonian Kroon is the national currency. 

There are very interesting places to visit in Tallinn. Tompia Castle, built in 1219, however, an addition was made in the 18th century and now being used as the parliament building where Estonia's governing body meets.  The Toomkirk, a Lutheran church is another one, which is Estonia's oldest church and dates back in the 14th century. You will find carved tombs, a coat of arms and an organ that dates back to 1913.  The Town Hall Square dates as far back as the 11th century, which was the center of life, as residents converged here to do their shopping at the daily markets.  It is now the main square of Tallinn, with a wide range of restaurants and shops.  The square can be recognized by the warrior-and-flag weather vane at its top.  There is the Russian Orthodox Church of  St. Alexander Nevski built in the traditional style of Moscow churches of the 17th century.  The interiors contains a number of interesting icons and mosaics.
