Christmas in Tallinn

Christmas in Tallinn seemed like a good idea since I've never been there at winter time. Turns out there wasn't much I had been missing out...

Before going celebrating Christmas in London we decided to visit the capital of Estonia - Tallinn, to catch their Christmas spirit.

To our surprise the streets in the old town which is the center of Tallinn were almost empty.

We found the main square with a Christmas tree and a market which had been closed as well.

Some locals and tourists but no huge celebration, even though it was Christmas time.

Since there was nobody around I decided to climb the stairs.

So pretty streets, but you just can't feel the Christmas when there is nobody around.

Then we decided to get up the hill to see the night town from above. It looked really peaceful.

Next morning before leaving we decided to see it one more time at day time.

Finally we could see some movement and life on the streets.

The weather was wonderful. The same as in Riga absolutely no snow in December.

Everything was open but still comparing to other cities you can really feel the lack of people. I guess after visiting Europe so many times I just can't get used to so little amount of people on the streets.
