  • This is just okay and NOT I felt a must see attraction while in Tallinn. It yes is historical but you really don't need to spend much time hanging out here and if you are short on time I would skip it...  more »

  • Outside the old city, the second most important space is located in Tallinn. Here are a few typical buildings from the Soviet era.

  • It is like Tallinn does not know what it should do with its one of the most important squares. As it is now, a place for the pedestrians, it is more suitable and reasonable than what it used to be - a parking lot. You have to do your best to ignore the monstrous slab of Liberty plexiglass, of course. They must have been drunk when they designed it.
  • Very historic and important in Estonian history. #EV99 was a great spectacle with so many proud Estonians side by side (disregarding their revered 'personal space') celebrating their Independence Day.
  • Nice, spacious public place with a lot of people, especially in warmer months of the year. Outdoor cafes offer coffee and refreshments.
  • One of the most famous landmarks in Tallinn. Freedom square or Vabaduse Väljak often see many formal and informal events.There are multiple beautiful churches around the place. In winters there is a ice rink as well. It is just on the edge of the old town so walking around is very nice. All the major bus routes in the city pass through Vabaduse Väljak.
  • Great place.... to know the history of freedom place visit during 12pm... with free tour guide
