“Classical sculpture. Nice playgrounds.”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

Classical sculpture in a beautiful park. For a family with children, the best thing are the surrounding playgrounds.

“Ok statue, not a highlight for a trip to Tallin”
Reviewed 20 May 2011

We saw the Linda Monument near Toompea Castle during our trip to Tallin last summer and had forgotten about it for the most part. While it seemed a nice statue with an interesting folklore history, it was just a statue, not something highly memorable amongst the better and more interesting attractions in Tallin.

“Lovely location”
Reviewed 6 August 2008

The Linda monument is situated in the park just outside the Old Town near the castle. It is sited on a hill. Linda was the wife of the giant Kalev. The story goes that Kalev was buried on Toompää, and as Linda was mourning her tears, the tears formed Lake Ülemiste in Tallinn. It was good to take a look at this monument and the park that it is in was very peaceful and pleasant.
