  • If you walk towards this direction you can visit the freedom square at the same time, but it is not a must see in Tallinn. It is more modern than old town and it is lacking the feeling.  more »
  • Large modern square where in particular the illuminated monument is interesting to look at. Worth before or after dinner to walk along.

  • Modern, large-scale area. Its present appearance space received in 2009 year. Here is a monument to the war of independence 1918-1920. Quite an impressive monument, is a 23-metre-tall cross, built from glass blocks. Also here to be a small, very impressive Chapel of St. John, built in the 19th century.
