Old Town of Tallinn

Old Town of Tallinn is the very well preserved medieval city and wonderful place to walk in the evening. It is divided into Toompea Hill and Lower Town. Toompea Hill or Upper Town was once an almost separate and heavily fortified town, which has always been the seat for Estonia rulers. The Lower Town or All-linn was member of Hansa League and home for the most wealthy merchants of the time. It was very difficult to be part of Hansa League and not to be wealthy.

For the photographer Toompea Hill provides many vista points with stunning view over the Lower Town buildings, churches, old cobbled streets and defensive towers. I found this place overviewing Saint Nicholas Church somewhere in between Toompea Hill and Lower Town. I used panoramic technique and very wide angle of view to teleport viewer directly into this place and make him almost feel this scene.
