The hippie movement in Soviet Estonia was not a clearly defined phenomenon but rather an era-based flow and an explosive youth culture whose connectedness to life was something that brought together a wide range of people, from hobos to academics. For the Soviet authorities it took nothing more than the hippie style of dress, long hair and rock concerts to see the movement as a political threat to the regime. But the more ridiculous things got in actuality, the more fanatical the Soviet flower children became. In the shadow of harsh rules and repression they shaped their own world, the symbolic expression of which stood in opposition to the dominating order.
