Tallinn is the capital and largest city of the Baltic country of Estonia, in northeastern Europe. The city lies on the northern coast of Estonia, which is the Gulf of Finland, a part of the Baltic Sea.

The townscape, viewed from above, gives off a soft rust-like glow from the roofs of the many low buildings and strongholds. The architecture of the town displays examples of several styles, such as Baroque, Gothic, and Rococo. The underlying similarity that connects the various architectural styles in and around Tallinn, as well as Estonia in general, are the red roofs.
