Similar to the rest of the world, holidays and leisure spaces emerged as a trend in Estonia in the early 20th century. During the Soviet era, holiday-making became a universal right, and the state promoted its development in various forms. This book offers a first overview of the rich legacy of Estonian holiday and summer cottage architecture. While focusing on the most common building types which helped make holidays available to a large part of the population, the book also explores the meaning of leisure time in the late Soviet society. A fascinating look at how the boundaries between public and private space, austerity and material well-being, were closely interwoven.
