City of Tallinn is living very interesting era.
Soviet time "environmental disasters", very modern and hip buildings and old classical, european style architectual golden nuggets. Soviet/western "hybrids" can be seen in mental attitude and architecture as well. I guess estonians want to break free some of their history by doing this.
If believed from internet, cycling is very popular in Tallinn, well, during our three day trip I did not see much of it. Instead I saw a lot's of massive SUV's, steamy trams and buses, quite a lot of pedestrians too. Traffic planning is for sure under development, I guess safe tram stops are coming after they have managed the SUV parking problems.

Still I found marks from cycling scene: Velonaut, Mystic BMX, City Bike Tallinn and I still believe cycling has big potential in Tallinn.
