The new Estonian architecture has the face of innovational thinking and the stamps feature parts of them: The building of the Tartu University Narva college of exciting lines of form speak the story of the complicated history of the town. The Snail Tower is a conspicuous landmark right on the bank of the River Emajõgi. The Estonian Embassy building in Beijing represents its restrained architecture and the Nordic taste of clear lines.
