The government building on the Toompea Hill in Tallinn was built inside the mighty walls of the mediaeval castle in the days of the first Estonian republic. Abstract criss-cross patterns feature throughout the interior. The most impressive room is probably the three-storey-spanning parliamentary chamber with ultramarine walls and lemon-yellow ceiling.
