Im so sorry i couldn`t join with you guys :/ I had so many things to do these days and I just had no time. But your trip in Tallinn was great! All pictures are nice but especially I like felar shots because I like to see how foreigners see our capital. I hope to meet with you next year in Helsinki
By the way this picture where "forumers discussing" I once bought Hesburger meal to that older guy on the left because I felt sorry for him.

Okay,my last few photos.

Taken somewhere in the city. Local mayor has proven to be popular subject to stencil graffiti artists.


Patarei prison - the hospital wing...hell,probably even entire prison would be a perfect place for filming a horror movie. Scene is already set,just add some fake blood!


If you were a prison guard then this was your daily view...


...if you were a prisoner,then you had to be happy with this view. Afaik,prisoners got an hour or two of walking time in the 'pens' and rest of the time had to stay in cave-like prison cells.


Got too bored of the grey weather. Imho,black & white weather is much better (the building is NO99's temporary straw theatre on top of Skoone bastion in Old Town)


Rebasepoiss & Felar investigating whether the straw theatre really is made out of straws.


As you already saw,weather was much better on Sunday,when we took an extensive tour throughout the city.

View at the harbours in Pġhja Tallinn.


Tallinn panorama. Click on the photo for larger view.


Rocca Al Mare,it's huge shopping centre & office highrise.


Well,the's all. Has anyone got more photos? Maadeuurija?

I've got a feeling that we should have visited the 'Kopli lines' as well. It would have been pretty surreal tour then From ghetto to über-rich neighbourhood (Kopli>Kakumäe)

Yeah,suburbs & metro area has quite good bicycle road network. For example,on that Kakumäe direction it's possible to ride another 20+km further to the West.
City centre is black hole for cyclists though.

Also I can't wait for the next forum meet up, hopefully I'll be able to participate again
Next year is interesting I'm not sure if Finnish forumers (those few on SSC) are planning smth,but it would be cool to visit Helsinki.
It's been almost 4 years since my last visit to Finland,so I'm very eager to see the changes to Helsinki area.

Oh,and really nice photos,Eugenijus! (I hope I spelled your name correctly..)

Some very decent and interesting pictorials here guys. Well done.

I didn't have enough will to make it this time but I'm thinking of visiting Tallinn for a weekend trip next year (most probably from Lithuania with a car via Riga). I was in Tallinn in 2003 and it would be very interesting to compare how everything changed since that time.
