Photographer's Note

Evening in the Raekoja plats in Tallinn. During the blue hour I was near the Orthodox cathedral, when I came down it became black hour.

The Tallinn Town Hall is the oldest town hall in the whole of the Baltic region and Scandinavia.
The building is located in the south side of the ancient market square.
The vane Old Thomas (Estonian: Vana Toomas) on the top of the Town Hall's tower, that has been there since 1530, has become one of the symbols of Tallinn. The height of the tower is 64 metres.
A Town Hall with a huge meeting room was firstly mentioned in a Real Estate book in 1322 as a "consistorium", which had a giant warehouse (cellarium civitatis) for that time.
In conjunction with the Tallinn Old Town, the Town Hall has been on the UNESCO world Heritage Sites list since 1997.
