Tallinn, Estonia

Cities of the Hanseatic League were the merchant capitals of northern Europe during the Middle Ages. They were independent, prosperous, and envied by all. When Communist regimes of the Baltic were overthrown in the 1990s, the Hansa provided the perfect symbolic imagery for building new nations. If only we could resurrect the past! [2003]
