Tallinn Song Festival Grounds, Tallinn

4.3
The site of a key series of events in Estonia's history, Tallinn Song Festival Grounds is today one of the country's premier music venues. Visit the grounds, which host an annual namesake festival that includes almost 25,000 singers. Learn about the role that the festival played in national independence, when thousands of Estonians gathered here beginning in 1988 to sing patriotic songs protesting Soviet rule. You can climb to the top of the 42 m (138 ft) tall lighthouse next to the main stage and arch, where you'll be rewarded with views of the grounds, the city, and the nearby Gulf of Finland. Be sure to check the grounds' event schedule for information about frequent concerts, rallies, and activities.

  • Very beautiful. Big and open space.
  • 4 stars because the Youth Song Festival charged 0.50€ to use the restroom and the line was ridiculously long. They need to set up portable restrooms. Also, there was way too much congestion at the event as though more tickets were sold than the space could actually handle. I also think they should put up two big screens up so that the back area can see the stage better. Other than that, I was still amazed at the number of children they had performing at this event. Very patriotic and very cool.
  • Beautiful venue, great layout, excellent visibility from any place you're standing!
  • Good place for concerts. Lots of sitting places and big stage.
  • Great place where Estonian significant singing events have taken place.
