As a park and a stage and band shell this is an average attraction. With a good guide this is an incredible stop. Estonia was free from 1920 to 1939. Then with no weapons or defences was subject to occupation and subjugation by first the...More

We spent a few minutes here on a guided tour off a cruise ship. I spent a half hour reading about this place beforehand. Now, days later, I still find myself thinking about it. You'll see an empty stage and an open field, but you'll...More

Really nice, big stage and park area. It would have been great to be there on a consert. It is very important to the locals, and they use it for their own pleasure and also for famous si gers, like Andrea Bocelli.

I was very underwhelmed by the area but it did have a lot of history. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there again.

Very emotional location that marked some of the early protests of Soviet rule in the Baltic States. It's also impressive on the basis of its sheer size and the number of participants who attended concert events. The park-like area lends to a wholesome experience.

Many would not think twice about visiting an outdoor theater with no seeming importance but when you hear about the history of this place and how integral it has been to this small country's existence it is very inspirational. Worth the trip.
