Trip to Estonia
During my holidays I've been in a 4 days trip to Estonia. For Oracle adepts this is the country where Tanel Poder comes from ;)
The trip was made up by myself and my wife, during it we drove ~1700 km. The general idea was to drive around all Estonia (it is not very big country) and look at some (hopefully) most interesting places. Here are 26 most interesting photos:
A view from Munamagi hill, the highest point in Baltics
Tartu Dom Cathedral, it is being rebuilt now
Interesting fountain in Tartu, second largest Estonian city
Rainbow over Peipsi lake
There is 8 km long street through the old villages along the Peipsi lake. It looks like that all lengthways
Ivangorod castle over the river in Russia. This castle is just in the opposite side of Narva river from the Narva castle

Valaste waterfall is the highest waterfall of Estonia
Estonia has some kind of oil shale, this hill is man-made and consists of slag of oil shales. It is 116 metres high. The picture was taken from a bit lower hill of the same origin, just older one.

Bikes at Palmse manor, which is in the very centre of Lahemaa national park, a beautiful sightseeing place
Jagala waterfall near from Tallinn
Tallinn has more than 2km long old city wall with many towers and everything in very well preserved

There was a bit rainy when we crossed over to Saaremaa island (actually Muhu island, which is connected to Saaremaa by dam). The sail is very short just ~20 minutes.

Angla windmills. There were multitude of windmills in Saremaa (~800) these are just a few of forever gone old might.
It is very easy to get to this Kaali meteoritic lake, it is just 17 km from Kuressaare, centre of Saaremaa
