Tallinn TV Tower (Tallinna Teletorn) is Estonia’s highest building, completed in 1980 to broadcast the Moscow Olympic games since the sailing competitions took place in Tallinn at the Pirita harbour. The tower has an impressive history and played an essential role in 1991 when Estonia regained its independence in August. Today the TV-tower is open for visitors as a tourist attraction. You can learn more about the tower’s history, enjoy temporary exhibitions (current one explains genealogy), dine in the highest restaurant in the country or get an adrenaline rush from walking on the edge of the tower’s viewing platform.
Ticket to the tower is 13 euros. Tallinn Card holders get in for free and from the priority queue.
