134 Sillamäe 2012, part 3 of 6

Continuing the trip on 11.08.12, next 100 pictures.

Leaving the first subarea of red brick houses. Leaving with incredibly nice memories and architectural awe.


These are older, from 1970's.

Wide balconies are not common on such houses.

Nice picture. The word on the picture for a hairdresser salon sounds old-fashioned, the more usual word would be "juuksur". It's still remarkable that it is in Estonian, because in 2000 there were more than 85% of Russians living in the city (by Wikipedia, and 4.2% of Estonians). Another interesting fact from there: the port of Sillamäe is the port of EU that is closest to Russia.


Amazing views! This place really looks like a sleeping part of a big big city.

After I took these two pictures, a boy opened the window of the nearby house and asked me in Russian, why did I took the photo of this car. I replied to him in Russian that this car is very beautiful. It really is, it's an old soviet time car and the colour is very nice too. I see that it has a Russian number on it.

I've never seen such parts.
