At the end of May, I visited Estonia’s capital Tallinn for the first time. I 
was a work trip, but I had enough time to explore the city. Estonia is a small 
country but it has a rich history, and a connection to my country Denmark—our 
flag, Dannebrog, supposedly fell from heaven in 1219 during a battle just 
outside Tallinn. More recently, Estonia has suffered in the 20th century, 
having to fight for independence from Russia after World War I, then being 
occupied by the Russians for four decades after World War II. But today it is a 
modern, prosperous country, member of the EU and NATO, one of the world’s most 
advanced digital economies. At the same time, the medieval centre of Tallinn is 
a UNESCO World Heritage Site, providing for a wonderful blend of old and new. 
As usual, I also visited a contemporary art museum, conveniently located close 
to my hotel. A rather large gallery from a wonderful  place is here:


And as always, comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
