Tallinn

Pinocchio’s Grave

  Pirita tee ,   Pirita         more than a year ago

No, it's not the final resting place of the famous Italian puppet, though that's what a younger generation of Tallinners has nicknamed it. Some locals also call it 'Impotent's Dream.' Most just call it ugly. In reality, the pointed obelisk alongside the highway to Pirita beach is part of the 'Marjamäe War Memorial,' and is similar in its imposing style to other large complexes created throughout the Soviet Union in the 1960s and 70s.
