This first period of independence was extremely short-lived, as the German troops entered Tallinn (Occupation of Estonia by the German Empire) on the following day. The German authorities recognized neither the provisional government, nor its claim for Estonia's independence, counting them as a self-styled group usurping sovereign rights of the Baltic nobility.

It is commonly referred to as the ''Tallinn Suburban Railway'' because it transports commuters in and out of the capital city. Elektriraudtee is a state-owned company (Government-owned corporation). Network The Elektriraudtee network extends in two main directions, eastward and westward, from the capital Tallinn, the total length of the lines being 132 km. Both lines start at Tallinn's central train station (''Balti jaam'', literally ''The Baltic Station''), which is located in the centre of the network. The eastward line goes to Aegviidu. The westward line goes to the town Keila, where it divides into two, with one branch continuing towards the harbour city Paldiski and the other towards inland Riisipere. The Paldiski branch splits at Klooga (Klooga, Estonia), with a short branch going to the beach at Klooga-rand. Architecture Jakriborg's architectural style has a variety of intricate maze-like streets and passageways. http: www.worldphotographyawards.org profile Peter-NILSSON photo Birches-I photo Absolute-Landscape photo Jakriborg 71988.aspx Jakriborg is not connected to traditional styles of other, more northern, parts of Scandinavia, nor with the functionalism that has been dominant in most of Europe for much of the 20th century. Instead, the style is inspired by pre-industrial town architecture found in the coastal region of the southern Baltic (Baltic Sea) and the North Sea between Flanders and Tallinn, of which the old Hansa City of Lübeck is the best known example. http: www.a10.eu magazine issues 1 housing_jakriborg.html Jakriborg has been criticised by architects as a pastiche of a medieval town. Career Mart Laar was born in Viljandi.

time+quality

out of limestone rock. Permanent exhibition is obviously focused on Estonian art in a wide interval of time. Quality of many pieces is very good and well worth a visit. Also very interesting is the (not too spontaneous) turn of interests of artists toward socialist themes during the USSR period. Exhibitions of modern art, mixed with net social applications, are often surprising and amusing. Not to be missed or overlooked. *


colourful+wooden

with rustic buildings and charming living areas with well-preserved and colourful wooden houses of bourgeois taste of 1920s), Soviet brutalist (concrete apartment blocks), and modern Europe (including McDonald's next to the city walls!). Tourism is important for Tallinn and this is especially visible in the old town where almost every door leads into a souvenir shop, restaurant or bar. Unsurprisingly the majority of visitors are day trippers from Finland. The neighbours from across the bay usually know their way around without a map and have already seen the sights of Tallinn a couple of times. They come to enjoy low prices on practically all goods and services from restaurant meals to fuel and even plastic surgeries, not to forget as much alcohol as the customs regulations allow you to bring into Finland! Districts thumbnail right The districts of Tallinn - tourists will probably spend most of their time in ''Kesklinn'' (the city centre), which includes the Old City (File:Tallinna linnaosad.png) Tallinn is made up of 8 administrative districts (''linnaosa''), which are further divided into numerous quarters (''asum''). Most of the points of interest to tourists are located in the seaside districts. The districts of Tallinn are: * '''Kesklinn''' - literally meaning "city centre" and being just what the label says, this district includes the main part of the Port of Tallinn, the Old City (''Vanalinn''), Tallinn's central business district with its skyscrapers and many other tourist attractions in the quarters surrounding them, including the ''Kadriorg'' park and palace and most of the coastline of Lake Ülemiste except for the part immediately adjacent to the airport * '''Haabersti''' - the westernmost district with the extensive coastline holds the Estonian Open Air Museum, the Tallinn Zoo and the Saku Suurhall Arena, as well as the city's largest shopping centre * '''Põhja-Tallinn''' - literally meaning "north Tallinn", extends north of the railway line and includes the industrial part of the Port of Tallinn, as well as many monuments to its military heritage, the Maritime Academy and the quarter of ''Kalamaja'' known for its wooden houses * '''Pirita''' - the least populous district of Tallinn stretches along the eastern part of its coast and includes both a popular beach and a forest. This is a desirable place to live, in single-family houses, for the affluent, and home to some tourist attractions as well, including Tallinn's TV Tower or the Botanic Gardens * '''Lasnamäe''' - the most populous district of Tallinn holds over a quarter of its inhabitants in the large Communist-era blocks of flats, but apart from the airport it has little of interest to the tourists * '''Nõmme''' - formerly and independent town founded as a leisure summer residence, Nõmme remains green and sparsely inhabited, with rich architectural heritage and many private villas * '''Kristiine''' and '''Mustamäe''' are residential districts southwest of the centre.
