Was hunting for things to do with an American friend I met in the KGB Musuem (check it out) and ran across the Linnahall almost by accident.

Never have I seen a greater example of Soviet Brutalism, the insanity of scale in this concrete monstrosity. The design is symmetrical in this great mass of concrete. As this semi-abandoned stadium runs off into the sea it feels like purgatory, but slowly falling apart.
