A bit of info on Tallin : It is the capital city with roughly 400,000 people. Estonia overall has 1.3 million people. The Russians occupied Estonia for many many years and their influence is unmistakable. You can see clearly in some of the buildings that they are Russian design. The newer buildings are totally different as the Estonians want to have their own identity. Still 25% of the country's population are Russian.
Ok, so we arrive and of course it is raining but not long after it stops and stays dry for pretty must the rest of our time in Tallin. We walked to the gates of the old city and spent the rest of our day there. It is an amazing place dating back over 600 years. Most of the buildings have been restored, some have been rebuilt and others have been touched very little since they were built giving you a good idea of what it was like at that time. We spent most of our time in Tallin exploring the old town. We made a short trip to the mall to do some shopping and then headed back to the ferry terminal for our 5:30 sailing back to Helsinki.
