Why locals love it

Looking more like an abandoned cruise ship than a hotel, the Soviet Olympic village certainly poses some intriguing questions regarding its structural integrity. Back in 1980, landlocked Moscow had a small problem facilitating the sailing event, so it was decided to host it in Tallinn. Estonians haven't stopped milking the Olympic city title since.

Why you should visit it

If you manage to make your way to Pirita, this is one area to visit. Seeing as it still functions as a hotel, we are forced to assume it will remain standing for some years to come with only a mild risk of catastrophic structural collapse.

Special tip

If you planned to go to the Pirita beach but the weather let you down, there's a pool and saunas inside.
