Let’s take a speed ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn.
It will take only 1 hour 40 mins.
Now we’re in Tallinn
First I take you to a palace!
A tour with shadows 🙂
Kadriorg Palace – Kadriorg Art Museum
One of Repin’s friends Akseli Gallen-Kallella.
Here’s my posting of his museum here in Helsinki.
Hand is very difficult to draw, this is quite good 🙂
I don’t know why but I really liked this painting ‘Port of Tallinn’ by Alexey Bogolyubov
detail of Port of Tallinn by Alexey Bogolyubov
Next time we’ll explore in the city of Tallinn.
Have a relaxing weekend!

Perhaps you like it because of the quality of light that is in it? Looking forward to your adventures in Tallinn!
I’ve heard the Estonians have wonderful solstice celebrations and I’d love to get to go to one. Thanks for this tour!
The oils are gorgeous. And I was excited to see the first pic is a gif image! 🙂 I love visiting museums.
Always such a pleasure to see your photos BLOGitse!
Thank you for grand tour of the palace. I love that painting with the ship as well. Those types of ships had a majestic presence.
What a beautiful museum. Thanks for taking us along. I hope to visit one day in real life.
Thank you for the trip. The palace was beautiful 🙂
We saw the medieval city of Tallinn. Next time I would love to visit the museum. Great art and history
The palace is so beautiful. The architectural flourishes are stunning.
What a great selection of photos, I am looking forward to the city shots next week
Thank you for the great visit!
An absolutely fine tour in the city of Estonia. So beautiful city during summer.
We Scandinavians love to take those ferries. From Stockholm took longer that you have in Helsinki.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
O what a magical palace/museum. So love all the detail of the artwork on the ceiling. Fascinating photos.
What an impressive city – its heritage is extensive, and happily the USSR is no more. A palace and a museum so often make a city come alive as its life now has evolved from these earlier times. These Finnish artists are amazing as they are alive on canvas…the hand is beautiful, so lifelike as the artists hands alone carefully crated the ultimate tool of the artist. It is a work of art. You have had an amazing holiday, we look forward to more of your travels!
Interesting post about this artist..the Great Men of Finland is a fascinating piece.
The drawing of the hand is superb.
I don’t know about the ferry – I might have gotten seasick!
you had me at the hand…that is wonderful!!! thanks so much…as always…for the tour!!! happy weekend/week ahead!!!
Munkin piti nyt kesällä mennä Tallinnaan mutten sitten mennytkään…
Kadriorgin kartano on tosi upea ja onpa siellä hieno näyttely!Hyvää viikonloppua!
Mesta oli rempassa, siitä tulee varmaan tosi upea kun se valmistuu.
Aika hienoja töitä siellä oli näytillä – ja paljon turisteja!
