Just thought i would ask...

by Drugness

Hello all
I saw a pic a few years back of a statue which i think was in Tallinn. It was a larger than life figure of a man sitting down with his knees up and resting his cheek into his hand. I think it's in a park somewhere in the city.
Sorry for the very poor description...
Hope someone knows the statue i'm on about. It might be some sort of modern art display. It mightn't even be in Tallinn at all! :)
Thanks everyone
DG

You don't mean "The Thinker" by Auguste Rodin do you?
It is in the Musée Rodin in Paris

Google it for photos.

May well be a copy of 'The Thinker'somewhere in Tallinn.....I didn'tspot t though.

Apparently there are a lot of sculptures (including some Soviet era ones) in the grounds of the Maarjanae Palace Estonian History Museum. Might be there.

No it's not The Thinking Man in Paris... this one is an extremely large statue and has the statue sitting on his backside, not on a chair like The Thinking Man.
Not sure how i'm going to find him, might need a bit of luck while i'm there :)
Thanks for the suggestions though :)

The Thinker isn't on a chair, he's on a rock (or something).......

There's another Thinking Man (Mõtlik Mees in Estonian) in Männi park in Mustamäe residential area. http://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pilt:Tauno_Kangro_motlik_mees.jpg

I love that statue of the composer at the Song Festivals ampitheatre -- I actually took a picture with him on my birthday last year...I looked like an elf as I was by the stature itself and I have the pics on my Tallinn pages -- the statue is truly larger than life and sits on the ground looking over the green grass - and he is a major composer in Tallinn who helped in creating a sense of nationalism among the wonderful people of Estonia

Re: Just thought i would ask...

That one is HUGE! Look at the size of next to the trees.

Re: Just thought i would ask...

by Drugness

Congratulations leics!
That's the one i was looking for! :) Well done to you! :) I haven't seen that statue in years... hope it's not too hard to find in the festival grounds :)
Thanks again for the help! :)

Travel Tips for Tallinn

Everywhere you look....

by TheWanderingCamel

If you have an eye for detail there will be much to charm you in Tallinn. Everywhere you go there are little things to catch your eye - fabulous old doors and door knockers, glimpses of quiet courtyards through archways, painted gargoyles and carved water spouts, a lovely painted mediaeval clock on a church wall, light and warmth spilling out of windows on a snowy night, painted signs, a royal baker's shop marked by a crown-topped pretzel, - all this and much more. Keep your eyes open as you wander through the narrow streets, look up as well as around you.

Internet

by frockland

Estonia is probably the most modern country concerning the Internet: In local government council elections hold on 16 October 2005, voters in Estonia were the first in the world who had the choice of voting either from their homes over the internet or in a traditional booth.

People all over the country can access the internet from over 700 Public Internet Access Points (PIAP). The PIAP has a special traffic sign, with the @ symbol, showing its location. Most of PIAPs are located in libraries and other municipal buildings across the country. One can easily locate the nearest PIAP by accessing this website.
As a rule, no fee is charged for using the Internet services at PIAPs. PIAPs should guarantee everyone’s free access to electronic information, and to training where necessary

There are more than 600 areas (city squares, hotels, pubs, airports etc.) that currently provide high-speed wireless Internet access. More information: www.wifi.ee.

Sunday Visit

by grandmaR

We came to Tallinn from Denmark on a cruise ship. I knew before I came that the Danish krone (The word kroon, meaning "crown", is related to the Swedish krona and Norwegian krone and to the Latin word corona) which we had been using was different from the Estonian kroon, so I knew we would have to get some money if we wanted to shop in Tallinn. However, it was Sunday which I did not take into account.

We got off the ship, and as I usually do, I was carrying one credit card, one card to use in an ATM and a small amount of cash in US dollars. We just missed the shuttle into town, so we walked down the row of shops first. My granddaughter found a fleece hat that she liked so we bought that. I got a $20 bill cashed - half Estonian kronor and half Russian rubles. For $10, I got 100 kronor. For the other $10.00, I got about 310 rubles.

We paid the pedicab driver with the 100 kroon plus $28.00 which was all of the rest of my US cash, and he gave us a commemorative kroon coin.

On the way back to the ship we stopped again at the shopping area where were some cute cheese slicers, and I wanted to buy a sweater, but the guy in the money booth couldn't get my credit cards to work to get money and most of my cash was still on board. I hadn't thought to try an ATM in town, so I had to go without buying the things I wanted.

Saku Beer

by cheekymarieh

One of the local brews is Saku, a light beer (known in the UK as a lager). The brewery from which it is produced is the oldest and largest within Estonia. When I am away I always like to sample the local brew and this was refreshing drink in the middle of the day.

Monument to Michael Park

by Airpunk

I didn’t know anything about Michael Park until I saw this sculpture dedicated to him. A shiny metal cube with the name of a man who died at the age of 39. It was later that I found out who Michael Park was. Mr. Park was a british rallye driver, co-pilot of estonian pilot Markko Märtin. Michael Park died on September 18th 2005 after crashing into a tree during the Wales rallye. Märtin left the car without injuries and retired afterwards from the World Rallye series. Michael Park was a popular driver in Estonia and it is said that he adopted the country as a second home.
