We ate here and drink some beers. Sitting on top of the building it feels like you are in Soviet Russia at the baltic sea. The views both on the sea but on the old town as well are really good. There are a lot...More

Worth a visit for a few reasons. One is a fantastic restoration project over a half century. Next is the foundations of municipal democracy in an authentic setting ( next to original). The third is a museum display of costumes of the period and exhibits...More

The main difference with Helsinki and Tallinn city hall, dating from 14th century is that the latter is open for weary travelers with prices to afford. Only five Euros including for a drink of spiced vodka, a pint of water and as many salted cucumbers...More

This concrete structure was built for the 1980 Olympics in USSR. It is no longer is use (was a concert hall more recently) and is dirty and rundown. But fascinating if you want a glimpse of the past. We enjoyed a quick walk around and...More

This huge structure is a fine example of Soviet time architecture. It is big, ugly and made of concrete. And it is useless now and I'd assume about to be demolished.

I was driving around Tallinn and found this long lost treasure. It's a a shame that it has fallen into such disrepair over time. Graffiti and broken glass are all around. Still, it's worth the time to check it out and walk around.
