Vaikla Studio on the roadtrip: Tallinn-Pärnu-Riga-Kaunas-Warsaw-Kielce-Łódź-Sopot-Gdansk


We travelled by car from Tallinn to Pärnu then through the Baltics staying a night in Kaunas and further on to Poland to the different cities: Warsaw, Łódź, Sopot etc and areas such as Northern-Poland known as Prussia. The most memorable sites became POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw (Architects: Rainer Mahlamäki, Ilmari Lahdelma), Manufaktura area (arts centre, shopping mall, and leisure complex) with its’ significant Andel’s Hotel located in the old textile factory building, also OFF Piotrkowska in Łódź. Close to Gdansk we stayed in the atmospheric sea resort Sopot that is known for its’ longest wooden pier in Europe, also Hotel Sofitel Grand Sopot built in 1927. Prussia area became our favourite with small alley roads in autumn colored trees, geographically running just next to the Kaliningrad’s boarder, and passing by the historical tiled roof buildings in small villages. There we also witnessed Hitler’s bunker named Wolf’s Lair with its’ influential dark atmosphere.
