Commies have their charms too ... so living in a concrete world isn't so bad afterall ...

@Gatis
I see you have done that already ... nice to compare Spring in a Barocco and Garden world ;) to spring in a concrete world...

It's threads like these that remind me how lucky I am not to live in Eastern Europe.

:weird: yes, you a right. I feel very happy too, knowing that LT, LV and EST do not belong to Eastern Europe.


just such a conclusion from your side sounds quite silly. Baltic cities have not less to show than Scandinavians. and you shouldn't make spontaneous statements looking only at one (let's be honest - horrible) thread.

@alonso No need to be harsh ;)

Actually it's a commie suburb (how is it possible to make the shine?), so I don't understand how could you generalize about the Baltics from this area.

Nice. There`s a sharp contrast between commieblocks and nature. Nature helps to make this "ugly grey concrete sea" a little bit nicer.

OT: Btw in my school`s geography book Baltic states are showed as part of Northern Europe.

That's exactly the feeling I get when looking at hybrid's photos of his neighborhood, sander. :)

@hybrid: these photos are wonderful! :applause: I can practically smell the lilac. ;)
