Tallinn, Estonia – Europe #31 [VIDEO]

Founded in the 12th century, Tallinn with its ancient city walls, high church spires and red roof tops it was an irresistible sight.

Walking around on the cobble stoned streets and alleyways lined with medieval houses in mixes of German, Russian, Swedish and Danish architecture, you feel as though you have stepped back in time.

To add to the experience, shop keepers and restaurant waiters are all dressed up in medieval outfits. Some people might have found it a bit tacky, but personally I think it enhanced the feeling and made it easy to imagine what life would have been like a few hundred years ago.

    If they ever decided to make a real life Shrek movie, I think they would film it there…

      Haha yeah I hope so, it would be the perfect location for a film like that! I’m surprised they didn’t film “A Knight’s Tale” in Tallinn, but in Prague..

    That’s great to hear, it wasn’t on our list at first either, but we absolutely fell in love with the place and are so glad we got the chance to visit.
