Where I stayed
After the first stress of the trip and after settling down in the cosy room in Wana Viru hotel we were ready to walk around the old town and to admire the beauty of this Unesco World Heritage site - Tallinn Old Town.
The old town is very unique place in Europe, maybe the best remained medieval town in this continent. At least now the whole place looked and felt like a medieval theme park. Everywhere were some people dressed like in medieval times, music groups performing medieval music and so on. The atmosphere is undescribable. Sometimes the idyl is broken by herds of Finnish drunken tourists though which I shame enormously. Some people should not be allowed to own travel documents. Or maybe the old medieval punishment methods should be taken in use again. There is a nice town square where those bad behaving people could be prepared with tar and feathers. But in most cases they are so drunk they would just think it is just one more nice accident on their adventure in Tallinn. And back home they would be proud of that.
This evening we also tried to contact few HC (www.hospitalityclub.org) members without a result. They were either in a different city or in different country. So, we had nice dinner in an Austrian type of beer restaurant and walked our feet off around the medieval center.
