Tallinn, Estonia

The third and last of the Baltic countries was Tallinn, the capitol of Estonia. It was a beautiful medieval city with an upper town and lower town.

A view from upper town looking down on lower town.

We encountered some of the biggest cobblestones we have ever seen. These are about the size of a loaf of bread. Not made for easy walking, but then we all had on sensible shoes.

We ate at this beautiful restaurant, Gloria, one night. It was part of our tour, but we could eat whenever we wanted.

The food was as elegant as the room. Some of us had borscht again for an appetizer, but this time it came with an enormous garlicky pop-over on top. I wish I had taken a picture. We all ordered different things and we all loved what we had.

Isn't Tallinn a beautiful city? My mother was born on an island off the coast, and went to Tallinn to live with her brother until WWII broke out.
She went back many times, but I've never been there.
Thanks for the lovely pictures!
