What did I learn this week in Estonia part 6
Alternative nightclubs, good pasta and great architecture. New headline as a bonus.
- I decided to change the headline from about Estonia to in Estonia. Things I learn here can be universal too.
Von Krahl in Vanalinn is a small two floor venue where many of Tallinns alternative and creative people go. First floor has a dancefloor and a balcony with bars. Second floor is for live bands. Last friday there was a party called Plektrum which was absolutely great. It has been a while since I last heard such good music and danced to it most night!
Restoran Kadriorg at Weizenbergi 18 offers good properly boiled al dente pasta. All other places I have eaten in have had it overboiled. Downside is the price. Starters range from 110 to 200 kroons, pasta dishes 70 to 130 kroons and 255 to 335 kroons. The restaurant is good but Tallinn has restaurants with much better price to quality ratio.
- Architecture of some of the beachouses at Viimsi area is absolutely elegant and simple. I was especially impressed by the houses designed by 3+1 architects I saw. Sadly not everything in Viimsi is elegant. You can also find some houses which have gone overboard and look like fairytale castles.
- The different smelling smoke in private house areas comes from the palava kivi or burning stone which is used for heating.
