simply knowing the history of this place makes it worth a stop even if no events are going on; currently have national songs playing from the benches, even when no events are occurring which adds to the effect

We went las summer to the concert of Andreas Boccelli, which was a real big happening in the society of Tallinn. Women dressed in long dresses and men in black. Marvellous atmosphere and an excellent concert

After reading the history of Estonia and learning about the Singing Revolution, I had to visit. It was a cold and rainy day. I went by bus. For most of the time, I was the only person there. I walked up the steep hill to take this photo. This place was the most moving site visit I had in Tallin.... More

Read up on the Singing Revolution before coming here or you won't know what all the fuss is about. Many sightseeing bus tours of Tallinn stop here for a photo stop, because of its huge national significance. It was here in Summer 1988 where over 1/4 of the population gathered to sing and start the ball rolling for independence. It... More

I understand that this place has a history very poignant to the Estonian people but I trekked it out that way on foot expecting a 'wow' moment and got an empty outdoor stadium. At least I got some exercise I guess.

According to the Estonians this venue is of great importance as it was home to the singing revolutions that led to the overthrow of the soviet rule. After that many international concerts were hosted in that stadium which has a huge capacity. Other than the historical value you can enjoy the nature scenery nearby

If you know the history of the importance of Estonia's singing tradition, in maintaining national identity and in gaining independence, you will especially enjoy seeing this huge grounds. Every five years tens of thousands of people gather here to sing, and just before independence it was two or three hundred thousand. To appreciate it, first see the film "The Singing... More

Having just attended one of the most awe inspiring events of my life, XXVI Laulupidu – Aja puudutus. Puudutuse aeg, I must award this festival ground 5 stars. Perhaps there is a place to rate the actual festival but this is all I could find so my review goes here. I can see how when empty, the festival grounds might... More

Spacey open-air concert venue but not covered, so no chance to stay cozy in case of rain. If not sure about weather bring an umbrella and warm jacket with you

I've noticed that many people here have said that there's nothing to see here but they have missed something important. This place is a huge part of Estonian history in the long run. Go there and imagine the people singing there for their country and freedom. Then you will understand and see its beauty.
