Ethnic identity affected urban planning and architecture to varying degrees across the Soviet Union. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the landscapes of cities located within its former boundaries have undergone dramatic change. In some cases these changes have been heavily influenced by the surge of ethnic identity and nationalism prevalent across the former Soviet bloc. This project specifically looks at the roles ethnicity and nationalism have had in determining the development of the Soviet and Post-Soviet urban landscapes in Tallinn, Estonia and Kazan, Russia.
