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

A place where Estonians sang their way to freedom. We have our dance and sing festivals here. 80000 people is not a problem :D

Amazing to visit the site where the Singing Revolution occurred between 1987 and 1991 that led to the independence of Estonia. There is statue of Gustav Ernesaks, whose song became the unofficial national anthem during the Soviet occupation.

The Festival Grounds are touted by many of the local tour operators as a "must-see" whilst in Tallinn. If there is nothing on the go, they aren't really. A large, grassed slope (well cared for) looking down onto what is a vast, empty stage, Certainly nothing to give any background to the role the place played in Estonia's independence from... More

...this is a vey interesting place to visit. This location played a major role in the fight for independence from the Soviet occupation. It's still a major performance venue.
