There are so many wonderful architectural details and historic artifacts in this building. We had hesitated to go in but were glad we did.

The main difference with Helsinki and Tallinn city hall, dating from 14th century is that the latter is open for weary travelers with prices to afford. Only five Euros including for a drink of spiced vodka, a pint of water and as many salted cucumbers...More

Linahall was meant to be a concert hall, but now you can just walk over it, you can´t go inside. Anyway, it´s an amazing example of soviet architecture covered in graffitti. Tons of concrete by the sea, with dozens of staircases. Interesting and free

This huge structure is a fine example of Soviet time architecture. It is big, ugly and made of concrete. And it is useless now and I'd assume about to be demolished.
