Yesterday [Wednesday] I had the longest day in lab with a friend of mine and I asked her to think about some answers for Lauren's questions and together we came up with the following.
The Estonian Open Air Museum. I used to go there a lot when I was a kid. Different school trips there during different seasons--you get to see how people used to live and where they'd study and I think there was even a day spent there where we got to do calliagraphy of our names or something. It's a really cool place to visit. Close to the museum there's a huge shopping center and a zoo. The beach is near. During summer there is usually an amusement park opened throughout certain periods. What's not to like? One can make an extremely fun day with tons of activities in that area.
Katusekino. Then if you're staying for longer, perhaps you'd want to visit this place which in English translates um.. Rooftop Cinema? I still haven't been there myself, but I have heard nothing but amazing things. You can check out the pictures and everything when you click on the link and see for yourself what it's all about.
If you want to see beautiful nature, you should visit the Southern parts of Estonia or go to different islands, because there are so many of them. If you're an art fan, you can visit KuMu which is the Art Museum. If you're a fan of music, there are so many music events throughout the year, but especially during the summer. If you're a fan of opera and ballet, you should most definitely go to the National Opera house and see a play (even though I'm not a fan, I've been to some of the plays and they're stunning and full of humour; I haven't seen that much ballet and opera, but operettas have been outsanding and quite brilliant). If you're interested in historical things, then there are so many museums (inside as well as open-air) to see and, of course, visiting the Old Town is a must. This next video basically shows it all and even more:
I hope you enjoyed this month's Fridays and I also hope it was as much fun for you as it was for me :)
