Our view of Tallinn's old town from our hotel window...

Kadriog was an aristocratic seaside resort in Tsarist times. It's still a very leafy, park-filled area of painted wooden houses and groves of trees.

Estonians love singing and this Song Festival Ground has room for an audience of 300,000, while the stage can accommodate 30,000 singers. The National Song and Dance Festival takes place here every five years. In between, it's used for rock and classical music concerts. In 1988, a "Singing Revolution" against the Soviet occupation took place here.
Nearby was an outdoor folk museum where this lovely lady was playing a traditional dulcimer
