    Communist Tallinn Free Walking Tour

    Explore our interesting Communist history! The Communist history of Tallinn can be hard to pick up in the modern city, but this fantastic tour will unlock the fascinating communist past. 

    We explore the scenes which hosted the essential events, and where tales both terrifying and hilarious played out.

    This free tour will dish out the history and politics, but will also give you real-life tales from locals about what it was like to live in Communist Tallinn. Some of the stories will shock you, some are so absurd they will make you laugh! 

    Join us on a 2-hour English language guided tour through the Old Town and into the fascinating harbour district, this tour is a must for anyone interested in communist history. 

    Our brilliant guides will help unlock the history of Communist times here in Estonia. They will also help you get to grips with what Estonia is all about and who we Estonians are. 

    Why is this tour free? 
    We introduced a free tour because we love Tallinn, and we want people on every budget to really get to know our hometown. We want you to fall in love with Tallinn as we have. You can decide how much you think the tour is worth by tipping your guide at the end.
