Some new pictures with my tricopter:

Viljandi, Estonia

The old water-tower of Viljandi between the museum and Town Hall has been reconstructed now into an observation tower.
Ascending to the top (30 metres high) you can have nice view of the whole town.

Medieval Order Castle, the building of which was started in 1224 by the Order of the Sword in place of an earlier wooden one.
Due to damages during different wars the stronghold now lies in ruins.
