Linnahall (city hall): "Kiev opera house"
The monumental Linnahall was initially built as a multifunctional event venue for the Tallinn sailing regatta of the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics and named V. I. Lenin Palace of Culture and Sports. Its brutalist style and impressive size serve as the perfect location for the movie’s intense opening scene.
Top tip: although Linnahall is currently closed to the public and awaiting renovation, the building itself is a sight to behold for its architectural style and grand scale. Also, you can walk on top of it to take in the beautiful seaside sunset or admire the view of Tallinn’s medieval Old Town.
Linnahall is located in the city centre, between the Port of Tallinn and the Old Town. Simply walk or take tram number 1 or 2 (stop: Linnahall).
