Photographer's Note

Photo from Tallinn wooden district Kalamaja.

Kalamaja mostly notable as one of the best preserved historic wooden architecture areas in Tallinn, and Estonia. The quiet neighbourhood has long been known for its colourful hodgepodge of old fashioned, working class houses.In fact, 'Kalamaja' literally means'fish house' in Estonian, and starting from the 14th century the area was traditionally dominated by fishermen, fishmongers and boat wrights. Recently the area has taken on a bohemian atmosphere, becoming the residence of choice for young, creative types.Clever use of space and dedicated use of local produce makes the local restaurant-cafés an integral part of the Kalamaja atmosphere. It’s the part of town where you will get the best feel of the locals’ life-style.
