  • Freedom square was on the way to my hostel, so I passed here several times a day. The square is special to imagine about 400,000 Estonians singing to the Soviet Oppressors, I loved the cross and then ...  more »

  • The large cross and spacious square commemorate the Estonia War of Independence. This is not really a destination worth making a special trek to see, but as it is on the edge of Old Town and other int...  more »

  • How to review the main square in a city ? Spacious, modern (LED lights and a huge plastic cross which has to resemble ice). Good for a parade, bigger concert or to hang out with your skateboard
  • Freedom full of history and memories. There is a historic church, memorial for Estonian soldiers (huge cross) and memorial with two tower clocks for both independences (near bus stops on the middle island) and a historical display on the Old Town entrance area where You can see underground ruins from centuries ago. Definitely place to visit
  • Personaly I go there to skateboard and for that the place is great! Other then that it is just a big plaza with little to no plants. Maybe an interesting place to see, but quite boring to spend more time then 5 minutes. That is if you are not a skateboarder.
  • Interesting history, but now mostly just a city central square. Some plaques and historic markers -- worth a visit.
  • A large area where the main events happen, when Tallinn or Estonia is organizing. The hill has a nice view and you can have a picnic there, but it could get crowded when the weather is warm

Where to stay in Tallinn

As Estonia's largest city, Tallinn has a wide range of options for accommodation during your travels. Many of these--from economical bed and breakfasts to a luxury hotels--center within the Old Town or just outside of it, giving you easy access to historical sights and a range of activities. Get more for your money by venturing a little farther away; try a guesthouse in one of the surrounding areas for an authentic Estonian experience. Be sure to book accommodation in advance if you are traveling in the summer, as hostels, hotels, and bed and breakfasts are known to book up fast for the months of July and August. This is especially true for weekends from May through to September.
