Transcript of Tallinn
Taevaskoja is a village in Põlva Parish, Põlva County in southeastern Estonia, known for its outcrops of Devonian sandstone on the banks of Ahja river.
Large Heaven's Hall
The ancient valley of the Ahja River is 32 metres deep at the Suur Taevaskoda (Large Heaven’s Hall) Cliff. The curved cliff situated in the river bend is 150 metres long and 24 metres high. This is the highest sandstone outcrop in the ancient valley of the Ahja River. The curved cliff wall amplifies the sound of the swirling water coming from the rapids, the singing of the birds and the voices of visitors. The Suur Taevaskoda caves are mentioned in records dating back several centuries. Old chronicles tell us that in the 17th and 18th centuries the Suur Taevaskoda Cliff had a gap at several feet from ground level, barely wide enough for a person to squeeze through. This gap was said to lead into a large space with three separate chambers behind it. There are no earlier written records, but folk legends exist, passed on from generation to generation.
Twisting cobblestone lanes and iron street lamps. Gothic spires and medieval markets. Cappuccino and Wi-Fi. This is the city's famous Old Town. If you're looking for that mix of historic ambience and cutting-edge culture that defines Tallinn, you'll find it here.

But Kadriorg is famed mostly for its baroque palace and park ensemble, begun in 1718 as the summer palace for the family of Russian tsar Peter I. In February 2006 the Estonian Art Museum opened in Kadriorg.
Water from the springs created a large cave in the Väike Taevaskoda Cliff. It is called Neitsikoobas (Virgin Cave) and is over 3 metres high at the outlet. The spring that flows out of this cave yields approximately 2.5 litres of water per second.
Emaläte – Mother Source. From the depths of the cliff cave originates this spring with its cold and clear water. The average streaming volume is between 4 and 4.5 litres per second. Emaläte is the largest Taevaskoja spring and probably feeds the other springs in the area, hence the motherly referenc
Today Pirita is one of the favourite places in Tallinn for spending free time, with its bathing beaches, coastline, pine-forested parks, and picturesque Pirita River valley. The whole area offers a spectrum of possibilities for active holidays.
