It’s easy to see why the town of Tallinn is a World Heritage site. We was visited the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Unfortunately, like in so many beautiful churches on our cruise they didn’t allow photos inside. I’m not sure why they don’t allow them but it’s their church. My guess is they don’t want it treated like tourist attraction. The mosaics and onion domes were my first look at the Russian architecture that was to come later on our cruise.
The Historic Centre (Old Town) of Tallinn is an exceptionally complete and well-preserved medieval northern European city. It was just fun to walk around the winding streets and take in all the charm.
It was a small town and not full of tourist which gave it a special feeling of intimacy.
