  • We wouldn't have known we were in Freedom Square if we hadn't found ourselves on the map. There wasn't anything special going on in the square while we were there.  more »
  • While very large, the square itself is rather disappointing though evidently important for the people of Tallinn. St John's Church is on one side but architecturally not the most interesting of Europe...  more »
  • We arrived to Tallinn via the Viking Line from Helsinki and spent almost 12 hours exploring. Our Uber driver picked us up from the seaport and dropped us off in front of St. John's Church / Freedom Sq...  more »

  • 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.
  • Nice open square near the old town of Tallinn. There are some cafés on one side of the square where you can stop for a drink.
  • Great square beat Old Town. A large space to enjoy the weather. Plus some great views.
  • Good place to start your travel in Tallin Old Town. Big space, bus and tram stops close. Underground parking (cheaper than onground)
  • Not much to do, but freedom square is an easy-to-get-to must for tourists!
