Views from St. Olaf's

Tallinn's St. Olaf's church, or Oleviste, was the tallest building in the world from 1549 until 1625.  Today, it still has impressive views for anyone willing to climb the 200 stairs to the viewing platform in the tower.  After meaning to get around to it for a long time, I finally made the trek up today (thanks to my friend Olga who took me there!).  Here are a couple shots of old town from the top.


  1. Back to the pretty pictures - and my goodness the old town is quite breathtaking - not least the 200 steps you climbed. I trust you are asking your friends to take photos that include you in them Kenneth, or in future years you won't be able to say - 'there I am in xyz!' to your grankids!!

    It looks as though you've been lucky with the weather as we have had rain rain and more rain in Scotland and it's cold too....

  2. Yeah, I thought I should probably post a few with me in them, at some point! BTW, I took off the pop-up option on the comments to see if they'd post normally now. If not, let me know!
