Starting off as a small settlement in the 12th century, the city – and its expansive harbor strategically place in the Gulf of Finland – was snatched up in 1219 by Waldemar II of Denmark. It wasn’t until then, though that Tallin was officially given its name – a combination of “Taani,” meaning “Danish,” and “Linn,” meaning “city.”
