A German Navy (Deutsche Marine) frigate was in port in Tallinn at the weekend and open to the public, ETV news show 'Aktuaalne kaamera' (AK) reported Sunday.

The vessel, the FSG Sachsen, was moored off Tallinn's Old City Harbor and welcomed members of the public aboard.

The Sachsen had been involved in an exercise together with the Merevägi, the Estonian Navy, ahead of the visit and will be taking part in further exercises in the Baltic in the next few months, AK reported.
