With an abundance of photos, John Toole will display an in depth look at Tallinn, Estonia — its people and its diverse and often tragic history. Many well preserved structures help bring the city’s medieval past to life, including the current City Hall, located in the heart of Old Town, that dates back to 1404 when it first opened for business. Tallinn also hosts many churches dating from 700 to 200 years ago, and most continue to hold services. Toole attended several different services just to enjoy the musical richness of their centuries old organs. The second lecture will include a continuation of Tallinn points of interest, including the 750 foot TV tower and views of the city and surrounding area from its observation deck and restaurant. The recently completed Estonia National Museum also provides an up close and personal look at Estonian history over the years, including the Russian and German occupations. A viewing and discussion of the photos taken during a four day trip to Stockholm will conclude the series. Enjoy the views of islands and channels taken while sailing along the Swedish coast.
