Just outside Luleå is Gammelstads kyrkstad (Gammelstad churh town) located. It is the best preserved church town of the once widespread church towns in northern Scandinavia. In the town is Nederluleå church and 424 wood houses that were used on Sundays by people that could not return home the same day because of the long distance.

Today, Gammelstad church town is listed as an UNESCO world heritage site. The houses are maintained to prevent rot and cleared from snow regularly during the winter.

Well, i figured Tallinn's Old Town or CBD would be cheating, so i went with my actual neighbourhood.

The ruins of Pirita monastery (Birgittaklostret in Swedish, of which developed the name for the entirety of Pirita), built in the early 15th century and ruined since 1575. It sits on the edge of the Pirita river and is located right by the mouth of the river. Right next to it is also the Olympic Sailing Centre.

There are many interesting places in our big country. In the central here, where I live, I mostly live in steppes with endless rovne and small hills.

You can admire it forever. :)

But I want to share several unique places I visited.

If you will be in central Kazakhstan, I advise you to visit: State National Natural Park Burabay.
Bayanaulsky state national natural park. Karkaraly National Park. Which is located in the endless steppes and somehow resembles an oasis in the desert.

We love to go to these places to rest savages on tires with tents. These places charge us with energy. Since we really have few of them.

Casa Loma, a castle built in 1914:
Image

Dundas square, full of advertisements and weird people
Image

Union Station: probably your first destination if you are taking the train from the airport. its been under renovation for 6+ years
Image

Toronto Islands, a short boat ride away. some people actually live on these islands
Image

Kensington market, where you can find interesting food, clothes, and more from around the world. you might also find a car with a tree growing through it
Image

Distillary district, basically a lot of bricks and beer
Image

Nathan Philips Square, because every city needs a big sign with their name on it
Image

and lastly (because i don't want to spam more), King's Highway 401, appropriately named because it is the king of traffic jams
