1469 : Warehouse Cellars And Wooden Jewels


After the excess and opulence that was St Petersburg, we spent today in the lovely old Hanseatic town of Tallinn. St Petersburg was magnificent, a true jewel of a city, but Tallinn was more human and more down to earth: traders' houses with warehouse cellars rather than royal residences and marble treasure houses.
