How Much Did It Cost – Tallinn Budget

How Much Does It Cost To Travel Tallinn Budget

I need to preface this post with the fact that the dear old Estonian Kroon (EEK) that existed when I travelled is no more.

Featured Photo: Flag of Denmark

While in Tallinn, Estonia I came across this interesting monument while out on a free walking tour. This is believed to be the site where the Dannebrog (Danish Flag) came to be. The story goes that the Danish were locked in battle and it was going badly, almost to the point where they had lost. But as they were about to give in a flag dropped from the skies. The […]
