    Tallinn City Hall

    Completed for the Moscow 1980 Summer Olympics, the unique City Hall belongs to the heritage conservation list. The look of this fascinating complex brings to mind the ancient pyramids of the Mayans, as well as the old bastions surrounding Tallinn’s Old Town dating back to the Swedish rule. The hall's waterfront location, its proximity to the passenger port, the seating for 4,200 people, ice rink, and cafés turned it into a great place for Tallinn residents as a cultural venue, but also as an element in the city's design. During the last event that took place here in December 2009, someone said "The City Hall is going to hibernation". Currently, negotiations are taking place to renovate the complex that can only be viewed from the outside and bringing it back into use.

      A fine place for sea views. Watch out for broken glasses on the ground. There isn't much else to say about it.

      First of all, if your guidebooks are telling you this place has been closed to visitors since 2019 or so, it's not the case as of November 2022. It's open, and you can walk up to the top. If you're... Read more comments
