Old photo

It probably was taken in Russia/Estonia/Latvia/Lithuania during Russian Civil War by one of my ancestors.
I'm sure this place exists today - I saw it on the poster few years ago. But place was not specified on the poster otherwise I wouldn't ask this.

There is some handwriting on the bottom of the picture but I can't read it.
