Telliskivi is the hipster neighborhood full of cafe / bistros with post-industrial footprint, artists and street art. In the background, behind the station (completely rebuilt with EU funds) you see overlapping graffiti, binary and the old town with the Orthodox cathedral.<br />

Estonia is arguably the most advanced country in the world when it comes to use of the Internet and related technologies. Estonia is a most improbable success, in that a mere quarter of a century ago it was still under domination of the Soviet Union as a very poor backwater on the Baltic Sea. Now it is a developed country and a member of both the EU and NATO. In late 2014, Estonia became the first country in the world to offer digital residency to non-Estonians living anywhere in the world. Non-residents can obtain an Estonian smart ID card which enables them to have access to many electronic services available to Estonian citizens, including the ability to create and operate an Estonian company. <br />
