(138)

After five years of construction, it was completed in 1980, coinciding with the Moscow Olympics.

Rising to a height of 314 meters (1030 feet), this tower swiftly emerged as a prominent symbol of Estonia.

In 1991, during the August Putsch against Gorbachev, Estonia declared independence from the Soviet Union. In response, Soviet forces attempted to seize the TV Tower, prompting people from across Estonia to rally in defense of the structure.

Shut for renovations in 2009, the iconic tower reopened to the public in 2012, boasting cutting-edge innovations and a host of new attractions.

Today, it stands proudly as one of the World Federation Of Great Towers members.

This article covers everything you must know before booking tickets to the Tallinn Tower.
