Tallinn is the capital city and the biggest city of Estonia. It was founded in the 12th century, and you can still see many medieaval buildings.

In 1219 the Danes conquered the city. After that it became known under the name of “Reval”. Tallinn has a long history – if you want to know it in detail, there’s a long article on Wikipedia about it. There are two dates however which are most important to all Estonians

  • In 1920 Tallinn became the capital of the first independent Estonian state.
  • And in 1991, after long years of being a part of the Soviet Union, it became independent again.
