Soviet chic in Tallinn

I love soviet-era commieblocks. I am happy that I can enjoy these buildings and areas in my hometown Tallinn every day.

This sunny March day I decided to take a trip in Väike-Õismäe (Estonian for “Little Petal Hill”). It  is a subdistrict  in the district of Haabersti. Väike-Õismäe is built up with large typical Soviet panel buildings of  5 -, 9 – and 16-stores, mostly in 1975-1979.
