Another one from my pen pal Mikaela. 🙂 It pictures the Old town of Tallinn (left), Tallinn Town Hall (top right) and Fat Margaret’s Tower (bottom right).
The Tallinn Town Hall is a building in the Tallinn Old Town, Estonia, next to the Town Hall Square. It is the oldest town hall in the whole of the Baltic region and Scandinavia.
Fat Margaret’s tower was built in the early 16th century (from 1511 to 1530) during the reconstruction of the medieval city gate system. The etymology of the tower’s name derives from the fact that it was the largest part of the city’s fortifications with walls measuring 25 meters in diameter, 20 meters in height and up to 5 meters thick. Apart from being a fortification against would-be invaders to the port of the town, it was also built to impress outside visitors arriving by sea.
