Free Tour of Communist Tallinn

We'll meet at 1:30 pm on Niguliste street. Are you ready to discover Tallinn's communist past? For two hours, we'll explore the old town and the Kalamaja district

The communist history of the Estonian capital is closely linked to the role of the KGB. Streets full of secret police, interrogations, reports and imprisonment were daily occurrences during the so-called years of Stalin's terror

We'll stop at the Kino Sõprus, the oldest cinema in the country. Did you know it opened during the height of Stalinism? We'll continue on to Harju street, one of the city's typical medieval streets, and head past the Estonian Writers' Union, the former KGB Headquarters and the Russian Embassy

We'll also visit Kalamaja, which despite being considered the modern quarter of Tallinn, it is actually one of the oldest! We'll admire the colourful houses that belonged to the working class during the industrialisation.

Our free tour will end at the starting point at 3:30 pm.
