Pirita hotel in Tallinn 2012-12

Pirita top Spa hotel was built for the Moscow Olympic games during 1979-1980; the sailing competitions were held in Tallinn, Pirita harbour area. At that time Estonia was part of Sovjet Union so this enermous hotel complex is also made in Sovjet style: a lot of concrete and postfunctionalistic shapes in a massive scale. It is very fine example of this architectural style. I spent there four days in the beginning of December 2012 and the hotel was almost empty. It is unbelievable spacious, with about 200 metres long corridors (I measured them!) and enermous halls. But also nice functionalistic details, as corridor lights. Very peaceful place with a real swimming hall (open until 10 p.m.) and a good gym. But best for me was walking around hotel.
