  Pinocchio?s Grave
by frockland

Pirita is a suburb north-east of Tallinn city. It has the the flair of a spar with a lovely beach, the Olympic Sailing Centre, a botanic garden, the ruins of St. Brigittas Convent and the TV tower. The restaurant of the towver offers a great view on down town Tallinn.

Several buses are rolling towards Pirita: #1a, #5, #8, #34a, #38

On the road to Pirita you will pass a huge monument nicknamed Pinocchio?s Grave or Impotent's Dream.The obelisk is ugly but a typical Soviet style monument. Not many visitors come here. The city hasnīt any plan with it and its only a question of time when the monument will decline.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
