Tallinn Town Square

This photograph of Tallinn, Estonia is representative of the colorful and well preserved nature of Old Town.  The entire old quarter looks to be stuck in another century.  A castle, churches, red-tiled roofs, belfries, and vibrantly painted structures were all indicative of a time past. 

When I began planning my trip to Europe I knew "far-off" places were a must and Tallinn's old world atmosphere truly brought that criteria to life.  This square is a gathering place for locals and tourists alike.  The town hall is on the right and the colorful buildings at left house wonderful open-air cafes.  In the morning, vendors fill the cobblestone streets to sell their goods. 

Ago vita vos somnium (live the life you dream)
