This week’s “Wish You Were Here” photos come from reader Matt McCall.
When I decided to travel to Tallinn, Estonia with my brothers for a quick weekend trip, I was not quite sure what to expect. What I did find however, was an unexpectedly interesting city. Arriving on a rainy, cold August night, it felt as though I was transported not only to another season, but also to another time. Wandering through the lamp-lit medieval passages in the misty night, I explored the old city’s streets, with its towering churches and numerous restaurants. The old city of Tallinn is surrounded by its in-tact city wall and many towers.
The medieval feeling I experienced the first night transcended the rest of the trip there. Tallinn is a city filled with history, from tales of trading in the old Hanseatic League to use of the old underground tunnels as a safe haven during World War II. This small country’s capital is definitely worth a visit, even if it is unexpected to the visitor.
