“Tallinn may be various. Everyone looks at the town from a different angle. Here is what the artist and cartoonist Hugo Hiibus sees in the map of Tallinn. In addition to being a Tallinner, and like every Tallinner he is a patriot of his home town. Besides, he has a hobby. It is his car and this is why he cannot see a town without traffic signs. Hugo Hiibus has named his map Tallinn–80. To sum up, let me tell you that all the different people inhabiting Tallinn have something in common–hospitality. There are more than four hundred thousands of us, and we all enjoy receiving friends and showing them our town.”
