Hop Galerii – Strictly minimal

Experienced travelers should know that during cold and rainy days a cozy gallery may provide a warm hideout and some aesthetic experience. Even better, if the gallery has soft chairs, smooth sound and a classic presentation-session with free snacks, drinks and easy talk. However, this gallery is a bit different.

At a 2-minute walk from Town Hall Square there is a street called Hobusepea (Horsehead’s). Often I make an extra turn to this street just to check what Hop and Hobusepea galleries have to surprise me today. I like these galleries, because they are unique and non profit and deal with original designs and applied art. Hop gallery is really small, so I can see everything that is inside without even entering it, and it is minimalist and strictly visual, so I don’t have to read long and sophisticated additional texts. And last but not least, they change their exhibitions quite often.

By the way, in 1981 some episodes of the legendary Russian comic-thriller “The Hound of the Baskervilles” were filmed on this street, where Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson were spying on Lord Henry. Together with Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker it is probably the most well-known film that was shot in Tallinn.
