Why locals love it

The Soviets built this thing for the Olympic regatta of 1980 set to take place in Tallinn. The idea was to demonstrate to the Western powers the superior concrete pouring skills of the Soviet Union. This would've been a great idea, if everybody wasn't so busy boycotting the games.

Why you should visit it

The roof of the building is a popular place among the local youth for enjoying the sunset. So grab a bottle, hide it well and head out to explore the concrete jungle on the seaside.

Special tip

In summer you can also head there straight from a nightclub as the sun rises at about 3.30-4am.

Great place to visit if you like weird and alternative spots or want to enjoy great views. The place for sunrises if you happen to be up so early/late :)

It was a beautiful place to watch the sunset. Tip: get there 25 mins before the sunset to take really nice pictures

It's a great place to go watch sunset and have some drinks with friends on a warm summer night :)

Great views and the most awesome place to have a drink summertime. Usually windy and cold though - be prepared!

Very good place to drink a beer outside and enjoy view of the old town, harbor and the sea. Eventhough officially drinking outside is illegal usually policemen and -women don't bother you up there and don't try to scare you away. (almost always you don't get fined when you drink outside). Quite popular place among youth. Sadly there might not be this option in the future because there are plans to renovate Linnahall, including top of Linnahall..
