Poor John and I have been lucky enough to visit Tallinn in Estonia twice in recent times. This incredibly beautiful city is home to Gothic spires, winding cobblestone streets and enchanting architecture.

Unlike many other capital cities in Europe, Tallinn has managed to wholly preserve its medieval and Hanseatic origin. Due to its exceptionally intact 13th century inner city plan, the Old Town was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

A walk through Old Town is a feast for the eyes of medieval churches, grand merchant houses, barn and warehouses, many dating back to the Middle Ages.

And of course, all those buildings have doors. That’s what today’s post is about—the magnificent, colourful, intricate and quirky doors of Tallinn. Two doors are captioned. The rest are on homes or businesses.
