Every year is held in Tallinn a light festival in the park of the Kadriorg. And every year I somehow miss to attend it. Yesterday I did go and I was more impress by the amount of people than by the lights.
The large park was nicely decorated with thousands of candles, forming lines and patterns. Despite of them I felt it was pretty dark and I had difficulties to walk without hitting people.
There were two very nice location with dynamic lighting. The first at the beginning of the park all around the pound and the second in the Palace’s gardens. Both included atmospheric music and moving spotlights to the trees around.
Few photos and no fireworks
I met at the Kadriorg my friends. We had a walk in the park and discussion about Romania and Georgia. I didn’t take many photos, a little surprising. I was more attracted by the candles on Freedom square or the Riga’s Staro Light Festival.
In addition to the lights were live concerts, and I was really waiting to
see one Estonian band especially. Due to the large amount of people present we were not able to be close to the stage and we couldn’t hear well. Not knowing but guessing the time of the fireworks we decided to walk along the Japanese Garden. What a perfect bad timing… they did start this show a little after 10pm while it was said to be for the end of the show, which was planned for 11pm.
After such disappointment and being tired after a long work day, I went to the dormitory with them, just having a snack break at kiosk.
