Nice park, good story, if riding the Red bus, worth a stop, and stretch your legs

Grounds are nice, good views, get the story from a guide or red up, big crowds when festival going on, smaller crowd any sunny day.

Great site but not relaxing on a Saturday when at least three local teams were throwing discs in three different directions. Areas were roped off and the ispiration of the site was lost on me.It is meant to symbolise the unity of the Estonian people through the Song Festival and his statue muses if the need will continue after his...

If you are interested in the history of the Soviet oppression and the bloodless way in which the Estonians expelled the Russians, just standing there is worth while. I could just imagine 300,000 people singing there.

Before I went to Tallinn I saw a special on PBS about the fairgrounds and how it played a part in the changes that have come to Estonia and the eventual freedom from the Russians, as they called it " The singing revolution ". It was very interesting to go there and actually here the stories and see the statues.... More

"Singing field" is the place for concert, culture festivals etc. Good point to start the tour in Tallinn. Even Metallica was there.

Not a lot to see. But worth a stop by because this is where the citizens "sang" their way to freedom from the Russians. Today there is an annual get together with thousands of very emotional Estonians reliving the famous event. It is also used as amphitheater for bands and well known singing groups..and icons...as in Michael Jackson...who played there.

The grounds are open quite late (after 10PM) and there are not many people, but it still feels safe. It is interesting to imagine it being full of singers. A short walk from Hotel Oru

200000 or 300000 people gather here every five years. Next is 2019 summer. They single national songs along with a massive chorus. Everybody stands for the entire event. Most of the time its a big band shell with a grassy lawn
