I love Soviet-era commieblock areas and buildings both in former USSR and in Eastern Europe. Highway ("Magistraal" in Estonian) takes me through such areas and some nice blocks are located right next to them. I am happy that I can enjoy these buildings and areas in my hometown Tallinn every day. (In case you wanted to see shopping mall Magistral in Mustamäe, please go to http://www.magistral.ee.)
Some old photos taken by my old analogue Olympus camera a week or two after I bought it. Notice the difference in colours? :) But more importantly, it shows that I had interest about blocks already back then and probably few years before.
Now I know that there are analogues of this in Lasnamäe too.
One of my favourite places in Estonia... Architecture and memories about this place are so nice. My first visit to Kääriku was in 2002 for the algebra workshop, and I have participated in that every year after that (it was (re)started with this event a year before), and it took place here several times later. They have plans to renew the whole group of buildings.
Same stairs in next three pictures.
Former farm-houses were rebuilt for sportsmen by adding second floor and so on.
So this one is also an old farm-house or cottage-house, with an added second floor.
Here you can see the original. There is a lot of information inside of the eating house.
Remarkable doors and view.
The floor if absolutely amazing and as '60s as possible. I am glad it is still there.
