TALLINN, ESTONIA HISTORY ABANDONED: PALDISKI 52

The area known as Paldiski 52, which is located next to the Hippodroom in Tallinn, Estonia, has a fascinating history. The area was once home to a large Soviet military base, which was established in the 1940s and played an important role in the Soviet Union’s military operations throughout the region.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, the military base was largely abandoned, and many of its buildings fell into disrepair. Now, there’s an eerie, haunting vibe.

This gas station “Point.S” was built in the 1970s during the Soviet era, and it served as a refueling station for military vehicles and equipment.
After Estonia regained its independence in 1991, the gas station was privatized and only continued to operate for a few more years. Point.S was forced to shut down in the early 2000s. Since then, the gas station has remained abandoned and has continued to exemplify Soviet architecture.

CHIศ˜INฤ‚U , MOLDOVA ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฉ : TE IUBESC MOLDOVA

“I Love Moldova ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฉ .”

“A Rose ๐ŸŒน by any other name . . .” = “Un trandafir cu orice alt nume . . .”

Old Roman Columns disintegrating in plain view. A graffiti tag from Bust, a Romanian graffiti writer…

Mysterious BNE has left his tag all over the capital city. No one knows who he is, but as someone who travels the world, I can tell you that he is arguably the MOST prolific sticker slapper in the street art universe. I’ve seen them in tons of cities around the globe. BNE is a proponent for clean water ๐Ÿ’ฆ for everyone… I’d say go to his IG, but, he’s taken all of his posts down…? I want to meet this guy so badly!

The Waiting is the hardest part.

An unattended dog , quite possibly the Queen’s , walks past a rundown house.

There’s still life inside these walls.

BNE. The sticker below is what I was referring to earlier. The tags that I’m seeing all over the city, are a first for me, I think. I thought he just did stickers.

Another sticker for mayoral candidate, Constantin Codreanu .

I love seeing books in different languages other than English . But, don’t read about that asshole, though. In ANY language.

Moldovans exit a bus ๐ŸšŒ on Stefan Cel Mare Street .

Cafea cu graffiti mele, te rog .

Locals hang out in front of the opera house on Stefan Cel Mare str.

Politics are a part of the fiber of Moldova ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฉ . Russian Matryoshka dolls for sale at the market in the park next to the opera house.

Kitty on LSD. Because, why not ?

I love it when street art naturally merges with the urban landscape .

FVCK your politics. Serve the people ! “Jack” sticker is from Zacharie Bodson, ร  Lille, France-based artist.
