Overview
More
Tammsaare Park is located in the centre of Tallinn, in the immediate vicinity of the Estonia Theatre. In 1896, a vacant lot here was paved and it became the new site of Tallinn's market, which was formerly located on Town Hall Square. Exhibitions were also held next to the market square. In 1903-1905, it was home o a giant wood "Interimstheater" -- a barn-type hall that was a venue for theatre performances and cinema screenings. In 1976, the park was redesigned, in 1978, a statue of the writer A. H. Tammsaare was placed in the centre of the park (designed by I. Soans and R. Luup) and in 1981, a sculpture, Merineid (Sea-Maiden), was added (E Viies). Interesting to know: - there are over 40 different woody plants in the park.

This small green space is right between a busy street and the Opera House. It is dominated by a rather moving monument to the 1905 revolution with a wounded man, brave woman, and clinging child. It is actually quite heroic, but our tour guide said...More

Worth a quick visit if at the Viru Gate and heading into the new city. It is quick and easy to do, it is a pretty standard small park.

Not many tourist know Tammsaare Park, although many of them walk there. Next to famous Viru Hotel and Theatre and near Old Town. Summer time they have ice cream kiosks, buskers, artists etc. Night time lots of drunks, so be careful.

Very small park near the Old Town and Viru Square. Nothing much around except the statue. If you are run out of time, just skip it.

Sometimes a landmark does not deserve to be classified as one especially if it lies in a city with lots of other impressive landmarks. This is a clear example of it. A simple park listed as a landmark among a real impressive almost medieval city.

It is just a park, nothing very nice, nothing of special interest. Just a place to have a seat if your feet are very tired. However, the park is more interesting in winter when there happens to be an exhibition of ice statues.
