The beautiful capital city of Tallinn is one of the Baltic's great surprises, a fairyland jewel of medieval architecture perched dramatically above the sea. In 1991, Estonia won its independence from the Soviet Union without bloodshed, and since then, Tallinn has succeeded in restoring its beauty and charm. A member of the famed Hanseatic League that dominated trade in the Baltic during the Middle Ages, Tallinn has preserved its medieval Old City with its high church spires and red-tiled roofs.
The heart of old Tallinn's "Upper Town" is Palace Square, home to Toompea Castle, the seat of the Estonian Parliament.
St. Mary's Cathedral
The Gothic cathedral is one of the city's major architectural landmarks and the oldest church in Tallinn.
This monument commemorates the Russian sailors lost on the Russian battleship Russalka, which sank in the Gulf of Finland in 1893.
