Medieval city fortification
Favorite thing: In the past the Old Town (Vanalinn) of Tallinn was surrounded by a 4 km picturesque but strong medieval wall with more than 40 turrets.
Nowadays about 2.5 km of the wall and 26 turrets are still existing. Some of the turrets can be visited and house museums or cafes.

The Viru Gate
Fondest memory: The Viru street leads you through the Viru gate to the Old Town. Unfortunately there's only two towers remaining of the entire gate. This scene is facing opposite from the Old Town towards the famous Viru Hotell.

Estonia is an independent nation
Favorite thing: The Estonian people are very proud of their status as an independent nation. The independent Estonian goverment flies its flag proudly atop the Pikk Hermann Tower of the Toompea Castle.
