The stables only reopened last year- and beautifully restored with excellent facilities- but the Castles and Pawns exhibition is outstanding- it is described as "the first comprenesive exhibition 0f the German occupation of Estonia" but it is so much more-It allows the visitor to understand that critical period of the coutry's history in a sensitive and thought provoking way-the horrors of a country thrice invaded and occupied in five years is brought home in a measured and thoughful way with clear texts and a wide range of objects from military and civilian life.The horrors of repression, the struggle to survive are all illustrated and explained -the most poignant display- on flight- is unforgettable. The accompanying catalogue- which is based on the exhibition - is excellent- buy it- and remember! An exhibition on such a sensitive topic so brilliantly displayed is a rarity -forget old Tallinn -make the trip!you will be enriched and educated.
