And also one of the ideas of the year was to open Tallinn to seaside and it sounds really kind of populistic. But a good thing was that we have very interesting seaside area, which has very complex planning background. There are very many interesting buildings there. There is this old prison that used to be a fortress etc. What happened was that City of Tallinn created this walking passage by the sea. Before for many people this was an area where nobody would ever go-to. But together with opening this Cultural Kilometer, that is how we call it, many people kind of understood that Tallinn is the city by the sea and there is a public space where to go-to.
And then with these small-scale events, Cultural Kilometer, ECOC dealt with a lot of space that was really appreciated by us. So that is why I really see it was something good, all these urban art festival and these kinds of events that were outdoors. Yeah, maybe I can even say because this seaside area was in focus then people started to think about the public space, the concept and what it is, why do we need it and what can we do there, how can we use it. That was definitely positive thing.
