5 Spots you Should not have missed during your visit to Tallinn

 

A recent business trip took me to Tallinn, the wonderful capital of Estonia.

I found alot of off time during my stay and so i took the chance to take a couple of pictures here and there and to visit some spots.

here is my top 5 list of places that you should have seen, that id really like to recomend to you to take a look at when you are around this area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“wonderful view of Tallinn old town”

The small streets are a little tricky to walk around but it is not difficult to find Patkuli. There are only a few lookout points on the hill, and you will meet them only if you make a circle…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Cathedral of Saint Mary the Virgin in Tallinn
(also known as the Dome Church) was first mentioned in records in 1233. It was dedicated to the Virgin Mary seven years later.

Worthy of attention inside the church are the gravestones from the 13th-18th centuries and the coat of arms epitaphs dating from the 17th-20th centuries.

The most famous people to be buried in the church include renowned Swedish military officer Pontus De la Gardie; his wife, Swedish King Johann III’s daughter Sophia Gyllenhelm; Admiral Samuel Greigh; and Admiral Adam Johan von Krusenstern – the first man to lead a Russian round-the-world voyage.

 

Toompark is on the west side of Tallinn’s old town, in a ditch which was dug in the 1760’s. Snelli Pond was later added in the 19th C by a Swedish Gardener. It is a pleasant place to walk during the day. You can get great photos of the city walls and a stairway leads up to the popular Patkuli Viewing Platform.

Before entering the church, take a look at the façade, where there is clock that has been measuring time since the 17th century. The treasures inside include a unique altar created by Berndt Notke in the 15th century and the pulpit built in 1597. Closed to tourist during services.

 

Walking along the edge of Darkside and Lightside

Tallinns Lightside Darkside Walk

During a visit to the town of tallinn, for a festival in the summer i had the chance to stroll the town and take some pictures.
the weather was nice and sunny, with a little bit of dramatic clouding that you really want for your pictures.

While i tried to get some nice pictures out with my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens, i noticed that it was a little bit too close for the massive architecture tallinn has to offer.

 

Before i switched the lenses to my Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM, i came across this square here. it took me a couple of shots to find out about the angle that you have to get at, to bring out the secrets of this place.

 

But after i had this 45 angle to the stairs going upstairs, i really started to like this architecture, structures that appeared. The women that was walking her path to the lightside, she bugged me alot, at first i tried to Photoshop her out of it, and i cant tell you enough how much i’ve tried.

 

But then after a while i just saw it, she is exactly perfect where she is. it almost has a philosophical approach to it, when you really take a look here. Just start to see it this was, in life you have descissions to make, mostly for all your life, and with every one of them, its very important to keep the balance of good and bad. your own balance.

She walks her way as well, see how she walks along the way that is exactly angled differently to the left side and the right side, thats your way. It will be different, it will be another way. but it will be your way, as this one is her way now.
