Tallinn estonia dating carbon dating notes
Estonia was eventually occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940, only to be conquered by Nazi Germany (1941-44) and then retaken by the Soviets.In World War II, the city was quite extensively bombed by the Soviets, although luckily the medieval town remains.All ferries except Linda Line dock at Reisisadam port, to the north of the center.Tallink uses Terminal D at the south-eastern side of the bay and Eckerö and Viking the Terminal A/B at the northwestern side.Kind, sincere, optimistic, a good friend and fun to be with. I prefer the healthy style of life, going in for sport and like animals and nature.
At the historical and medieval heart of the city is the hill of Toompea, covered in cobbled streets and filled with medieval houses and alleyways.Estonians consider themselves to be living in a Northern European/Scandinavian or an eastern European country depending on who you ask, with very close ties to Finland (ethnic, linguistic, and cultural), and visiting Tallinn you will find a mix of at least three architectures in this very visual city -- old Europe (the city walls with rustic buildings and charming living areas with well-preserved and colourful wooden houses of bourgeois taste of 1920s), Soviet brutalist (concrete apartment blocks), and modern Europe (including Mc Donald's next to the city walls! The most common ferry route is from Helsinki, Finland to Tallinn Port , which has upwards of 20 departures daily.Depending on the ferry, journey time is anywhere from 1.5 to 3.5 hours.The lower town spreads out from the foot of the hill, still protected by the remnants of a city wall.Around the city wall is a series of well-maintained green parks, great for strolling.
