Good to see you have a nice weather over there. Btw, do Estonians hang the flags for the anniversary of joining EU? I somehow assume we didn't do it

I liked the crow, she shines wisdom

There is certainly something special about those wooden houses. They look like from a different time.

Lots of people flag here at 1'st of May, atleast those with some sympaties for the left side of politics.

edit: I gotta get my inline skates out soon!!

Great pics. I had almost same idea to make photothread of districts, which are situated around old town, because there are really valuable places. Penultimate picture is cool. Tehnika street picture is nice also: regardless buildings look sad there, these buildings have charm.

Thanks, ch1le!

This was really enjoyable ... I just can imagine you zooming along on your inline skates stopping every once in a while to take a photo. Seeing these photos of different districts right next to each other is very interesting for me as an outsider!

And I hope there won't be any wholesale demolition of those wooden houses, they are so warm and homey looking! I hope the day will come when they are all fixed up with the latest amenities and landmarked!

part II , random order
near the US embassy/kentmanni/kaupmehe str.
its a interesting and curioursly dense part of Tallinn.. it seems to have replaced a glorious wooden district... which remains in smaller portions today



US embassy

looking right from the ebassy... :P




one of those curious wooden buildings... on..mmm..aum.. some street near Tatari......

heres Tatari str... in the future.. it will possibly be full of glorious new buildings the district (Tatari, süda, Sakala str) already possibly has/had most contruction sites in tallinn :P

a newly erected apartment building ...

a construction site on Kaupemehe str. ive heard it for a 8 storey office/apt building(huge next to the wooden 2 storey buildings next to it on (atleast on the str))

the wooden buildings are empty.. dubbed do be demolished soon i guess to make room hopefully for 2 scrapers...

Oh, at the end of this report came beautiful pictures!
I wonder - why in earlier times even poorer wooden houses had lot of ornamentation, interesting entrance doors. But today everything is plain, boring, without any ornamentation (many architects even consider any ornamentation on buildings as something bad!).
They should demolish Soviet time commieblocks instead for the new buildings, not these wooden buildings... But I am dreamer. In Riga the demolition of wooden buildings still is rare - but it might increase soon.

How do you think: is this

a progress comparing to this?

Believe it or not, but that little "raise" in the end of this street was the biggest hill ever for me to ride on the bike when I was something like zero years old.

And now you don't even actually notice that the street is raising...heheheee

Kentmanni..oh yea..my dear old home street. Too bad that US embassy tries to rule the world. You are lucky they didn't kidnap you for taking these pictures so near to their holy "church".

Gatis yes i have to agree..thankfully that area is under municipality protection But ill give you a word that these wooden buildings dont look good when not renovated And ofcourse the wooden buildings more inside the district are fine and left alone to stand for another hopefully 100 years... but the ones on the boarders of the district next to one of the business streets in tallinn should and are getting demolished, ofcourse some are still kept...

myah. A bit funny even to look at this contrast.

Tallinn has got several "architectural reserves"?
(Btw. Riga has got four - a) enormous historical centre, b) Pardaugava wooden district, c) Mezaparks Art Nouveau and Art Deco villas, d) middle part of Kipsala with wooden buildings. To my mind should be added some part in Maskachka, some part in Sarkandaugava, Vecaki Art Nouveau villas, Teika Functionalism district and may be something more)
