lasnamäe, the biggest district of tallinn. home to ~112 000 people (tallinn's population is slightly over 400 000).

majority of the residents are russians.


and...


there are 650 commieblocks in lasnamäe!




just a few photos, you'll get the idea...

























and some views from my balcony:






nice, huh? :)

Man, you utterly rock! (or, should I say, punk ;))

I've been waiting original shots from Lasnamäe for ages. I suppose there isn't any change of views from the bridges that go above the multilane road that leads to Lasnamäe?

well, not the prettyest of blocks in Lasnamäe, certianly not bad for such a huge area and for such fast development. I will make some photos of my district and other places soon enough ;) 650 blocks? That is alot, pretty scary that Lasnamäe was originally planned twice as large at 250 000!!!!!! only 50% got completed and another huge road (like the lasnamäe channel) was planned on the road next to Song festival grounds!

:) Great pics! Thanks. I hope that these buildings will be reconstructed, because this district is way toooo grey. I hope that you make such interesting
photo tours also in the future.

toni - the lasnamäe canal is just too far away from where i live... so unfortunately you're right, there's no chance of seeing it in the near future. unless some other tallinn forumers take some pics of it... winkwink!

martin - are there any nice commieblocks in tallinn? i want proof! :D

sander - everything i do is interesting! :D (keep yor eyes open during the next days;))

You're on a roll, Jarmo! :eek:kay:

And I agree with sander: WAY to much grey in those buildings. I hope funds will be found to cheer them up! :)

Oh, I was just a little bit disappointed of final result of reconstruction. ;)

^^ That's all I can see too, and it's probably because this is an old thread, Beta. :) If you look up to the beginning of the thread you'll see that Jarmo opened this thread in April; he has probably dropped those pix from his server since.

And welcome to flapflop! :cheers: That's a very nice link you give us. :eek:kay: Are you from Tallinn? :)
