Kaliningrad vs. Tallinn

The Russian First Minister Ivanov is calling for Russians to stop buying Estonian products (but he's not calling for a boycott) and asking them to stop visiting Estonia and go to Kaliningrad instead? Where would you rather go?

The difference is so clear, it's like night and day.

Hmm.. Kaliningrad doesn't seem to be the best place for a holiday trip but on these photos, isn't it literally a night and day?

Yes, I may have taken some creative license with the pictures I chose but it works. :)

if you take away everything "occupants" have built in Tallinn there won't be many places left to go ;)

Interesting comment, perhaps you can elaborate on what exactly the Soviets built that Estonians couldn't live without?

Not only the Soviets. All the nice castles and churches were mainly built by occupying forces too, not that we still have a grudge against them, but it's a fact.

Interesting list.

Obviously most of what has been built in Eesti that is still around was built during times of occupation considering how short our time of independence has been so far.
