It has a lovely ornate altar

The Silver Wind was next to the Belfast

Hi Joe,

I know I have seen some of these before in your other report, but these are so great to see again. And being here in this forum may help some planning their trip.

I enjoyed my visit to Estonia. Looking forward to your pics though.

 

We do enjoy Tallin as it's a DIY port and it's Medieval history .
