Tallinn TV Tower
A tower full of experiences awaits you!
The Tallinn TV Tower was built in 1980 for the Moscow Summer Olympics. Today, the tower provides an all-Estonian communication connection. You can explore several exhibitions and enjoy breathtaking views from the 21st floor of the tower.
The exhibition on the second floor tells the story of the construction of the TV Tower and the historic incident in the early morning of August 21, 1991, when Russian paratroopers tried to take over the TV Tower. The exhibition “Radios of our dreams” introduces receivers from the collection of the Estonian Broadcasting Museum. These were the dream-come-true radios that belonged to Estonians, and which were bought with effort and kept like family members.
One of the main symbols of the TV Tower is Dolores Hoffmann’s stained-glass work “Television is a window to the world”, which can be seen on the south side of the tower.
Regardless of the season, the TV Tower offers exciting views and, in good weather, you can see the coast of Finland about 80 kilometers away.
