Photos: Travel to Tallinn, Estonia
A weekend in Tallinn, capital of Estonia, is perfect for wandering around the Old Town, which is surrounded by the ancient city wall and numerous defensive military towers. A trip in May revealed that the Baltic spring was a few weeks behind the British season and the flowers were just starting to open and the trees were just starting to come into leaf against a bright blue sky. Numerous historic churches act as waypoints as you explore the city and there are beautiful parks, full of trees, in which to relax. And just across the water lies Helsinki.
