Read an Excerpt

Peter the Great visited Tallinn on nine different occasions, so crucial was it as an ice-free port to his empire. In 1711, on his first visit, he joined Christmas celebrations in Town Hall Square. He would later comment: ‘If Tallinn had been mine in 1702, I would never have established my capital on the low-lying land of the Neva River but would have done so here.’  Since his time, the Old Town has remained the centre of Tallinn and its main attraction. It is often described as having half a per cent of the surface area of Tallinn but giving it its entire magic.

The fame of Haapsalu can be ascribed to just one product, mud. It appealed first to the St Petersburg nobility and then to Tsars Nicholas I and Alexander II. The composer Tchaikovsky was a regular visitor and he is commemorated by a marble bench on the seafront. The station platform built to accommodate the Tsar’s train is one of the longest in Europe.

The official name for what everyone knows as the Chaplin Centre is the Pärnu Modern Art Museum but this is hardly ever used now. Charlie Chaplin would have approved of the fact that an institution bearing his name has taken over the former Communist Party headquarters. He would also have liked the statue now usually placed at the front of the building – a Lenin torso with his head replaced by a red light. One has to stress usually as his head can be replaced by a model of a local politician with whom the gallery are in dispute. Another choice has been the head of Georg Richmann, a Pärnu-born physicist who had the macabre distinction of being the first person to be killed in an accident with electricity.
