Tallin – View from Nordic Hotel Forum
Being the cultural, economic and political center, as well as the capital of Estonia, Tallinn is one of the biggest, oldest and significant cities of the Baltics. The historical legacy of Tallinn, as well as the other capitals of the Baltic region, can be clearly seen in the Old Town. The Old Town of Tallinn has a particularly unique structure and an untouched appearance that almost hasn’t changed throughout the ages, which can be seen in this HD webcam Tallinn stream.

The view from the Tallinn live camera from the Nordic Hotel Forum also includes the National Opera “Estonia” and the Tammsaare park, which is the largest park in Tallinn after the Kadrioru park. Having been built in 1913, the National Opera, which is the biggest building in Tallinn at the moment, is another indicator of the city’s architectural diversity and cultural heritage of the capital of the Estonian capital. In contrast to the Old Town, the building had been almost completely destroyed after the bombardment in 1944 and had been renovated in 1947.
Between the Opera and the Old Town lies the Estonia Boulevard. It is one of the key transport arteries of the city and is the home of the previously mentioned National Opera, as well as the Bank of Estonia and the Central Library in Tallinn. One can see the buzz of traffic, both human and machine, milling about on the Baltic Live web camera footage.
As for the Old Town of the Estonian capital, the historical part of Tallinn is one of the most remarkable not only in the Baltic region but in the whole Northern Europe due to its unusual structure. Since the Medieval times, the town has been divided into two main parts: the lower part was reserved for ordinary citizens, merchants, and craftsmen, while the Upper Town (Toompea) was home to the noble. The Toompea is also the place where the state’s vital governmental buildings, including the parliament, are concentrated. Apart from its peculiar layout, the Old Town is one of the very few medieval European towns that survived World War II. It is also the only Hanseatic town that shows all the historical legacy of the once great trade union.
The Old Town is definitely enthralling for everyone, but there are loads of details that will be recognizable for the citizens of fellow Baltic cities, especially Riga. Just like the Latvian capital, Tallinn has the house of the Blackheads, which, apart from its Latvian brother (or any brother from any Hanseatic city), was never destroyed and is still standing, providing the prime example of the city’s exuberant history. This is just one of the few similarities between the two major Baltic cities.
The complexity of Tallinn which varies from the cozy wonders of the Old Town to the magnificent monumentality of the National Opera, along with the harbour which can be viewed from Tallinn Bay via a camera online shows the constant growth and development of Tallinn and that the capital of Estonia can be held in high regard.
