    Tallinn is the capital city of Estonia. First established in the early medieval era, today’s Tallinn is an exciting mix of old and new. Here’s the good news: with Tallinn being such a compact, green capital, you can cover a lot in just a weekend and enjoy short scenic strolls while at it. Tallinn Old Town is one of the best-preserved Hanseatic town centres in the world. A stone’s throw away you’ll find the city’s business centre with modern towers and luxurious hotels, trendy neighbourhoods and large shopping centres. 
    More information about the city can be found on the website of Visit Tallinn or Tallinn travel guide.

    Address venue 19 October:
    House of the Blackheads Pikk 26 Tallinn, Estonia

    Tallinn’s Brotherhood of the Blackheads was the guild for unmarried merchants and shipowners. It is not clear precisely when it was founded, but the oldest original document mentioning the Blackheads is the Brotherhood’s contract with the Tallinn Dominican monastery from March 28, 1400. This contract affirms the Blackheads’ right to the religious paraphernalia they had deposited at the Dominican St. Catherine’s Church. It is surmised that the contract, an important development for the Brotherhood, must have been entered into shortly after the brotherhood was formed. Therefore the founding date of the brotherhood has been set a few months earlier, in the year 1399.
