From the tower of the “Oleviste kirikus” (St Olaf’s church) one has a beautiful view over Tallinn. The centre of the town is beautiful renovated in the last years. Estonia is doing very well as member of the EU.
The 3 churches on the photo are: (from left to right)
1., St. Nicholas’ church (Niguliste kirik)
2. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral (Aleksander Nevski katedral)
3. St Mary's Cathedral (Estonian: Toomkirik,)

Hello, Rob, my neighbor today,
Oh, great capture of the Tallinn cityscape! Unfortunately, I have never been in Baltic countries. Fine DoF, excellent presentation of the main landmarks of the city. Do you tested their legendary "Vana Tallinn"?

This is a fine cityscape with nice sharpness and DOF. The placement of the city center works well with the rooftops in the foreground leading the eye into the scene.

It's a beautiful view, with great light, colours and a perfect framing. It looks like a charming place to visit, at least in Summer.
Regards, TFS, José.

Mooi overzicht over deze sprookjesachtige stad. Het lijkt wel een groot monument.
Prachtige foto met het wit en zachte rood van de huizen en al dat groen er tussendoor.

This is a fine postcardish kind of view of old Tallinn. That part of the city is really charming and well restored, but in the not so touristic areas, among the rundown wooden houses, it's hard to realize that the country is doing so well. The same goes for the neglected, partly abandoned villages where not much seems to have changed since Soviet days. But these towers and charming roofs create an image of a fairy tale, especially on a nice day like that.

Hello Rob, Fantastic view of the red roofs and towers of Tallinn. You found fantastic POV on the tower of St. Olaf Church. When I was there in February, it was closed, I suppose. Anyway, I can see this splendid panorama on your shot, I like specially the whole view of the upper city. Of course, not everything is renovated but one feels like in like a EU country. Not so in former Caucasian Republics.

Uiteraard een prachtig plaatje van dit schattige stadje vol met rode en oranje daken en torenspitsen. Het was de klim naar boven wel waard.

Pleasing view over the old town of Tallinn and its three iconic churches. It captures the essence of the place well.
Having said that, Tallinn is well worth a visit and when visiting my in laws in Finland, it is only a short ferry ride away.
have a great weekend

Fine panorama of this old beautiful city. I like the red roofs of different dimensions and the sunlight over the facades. Well taken.
