Tallinn, Estonia

Estonia flag 2

Our next stop was Tallinn, Estonia, the smallest of the Baltic states (the others being Latvia and Lithuania). Though small, with a population of only 1.3 million (about the same as Ottawa-Gatineau), it is technically very advanced e.g. online voting had been in place since 2005. Of all the ports in this cruise, Tallinn is the only city with free Wi-Fi everywhere. It is also where Skype was invented. Just as David slewed Goliath, you don’t have to be big to win.

Shopping for souvenirs near Town Hall Square. Prices are high in Europe but cheaper in Tallinn.
