Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Old Town Tallinn
 

Another view of the Cathedral.
In Estonia, there are no pews in the churches, as it is considered an affront to God to sit in His presence.

 

Walking through Old Town
 

Tallinn was originally a fort surrounded by a fortified wall, the interior of which is the Old Town
 

What use to be the moat, is now a public park

A view of modern Tallinn as we are leaving
 

I know it looks like an ordinary sunset, but this picture was taken at 12:30am
 
 
By comparison, this was taken at 2:00am, and the sun doesn't get any lower than this during the months of June and July.
Hence the name "White Nights"
