Tallinn

Estonia

In November, I went on a day trip to Tallinn. Travel schedule was very tight and free time almost was not. On the day of departure, I got up early in the morning and managed to the plane a few hours to run through the old town with a camera. Photo report attached.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


We stayed with our colleagues at the Old Town Maestro's Hotel, which is actually located in the old town (the hotel is in the center of the frame is not ours, our right away).
 

Таллин, Tallinn


I heroically stood up at 6 o'clock in the morning and the first thing went to the Town Hall Square.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


On the way I met a very photogenic restaurant Olde Hansa.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


Outside it was still dark.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


Again Olde Hansa, but from the other side.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


And here is the Town Hall Square - the center of old Tallinn. Very interesting lighting effect - Town Hall casts a shadow directly on the cloud.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


Mysterious tunnel in the town hall.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


At the reception of the hotel I have provided a map and pointed out to them viewing platforms with different views to the old town.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


I had an idea to get to some observation deck after dark and have time to take pictures of night city from above.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


But I did not have time and dawn found me near the Alexander Nevski Cathedral.

But from Alexander Nevski Cathedral also offers spectacular views of the old town.

Таллин, Tallinn


It has been quite light and illumination of the old city became disabled.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


Especially I had no luck here with this tower. I only try on and take it off, as the backlight turns off, and instead of a masterpiece got boring gray frame :)
 

Таллин, Tallinn


Meanwhile, I was very cold and hungry.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


And I decided to go back to the hotel.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


In the hotel I changed clothes and a hearty breakfast.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


At breakfast, I met with a colleague at work, and we continued to explore the city together.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


First we went to Toompea, where are those same viewing platforms, to which I have not got the night.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


Toompea is part of the old town and is located on a hill.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


It offers truly stunning views of the entire old town.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


We are very unlucky with the weather and fabulous views covered with gray cloudy sky and filled the autumn melancholy.
 

Таллин, Tallinn


Although red roofs sometimes saved from complete despair :)

Golden Autumn far behind, but some trees still kept their festive attire.
