It was kind of a long walk from the bus stop till the tower, so if it's a hot day, be prepared and bring some water along with you. If you have a chance to drive to there, I would recommend you do so, cause...More
If you’re expecting a usual fancy tall building / observation deck experience then this is not the place for you. If you’d like to experience a Soviet TV Tower from the mid 1980s that’s had nothing done to it since then this is the place...More
We spent about 3 hours here and enjoyed it! We got an Uber from Tallinn to the tower because it’s too far to walk and went on the ‘walk the edge’ tour where you can actaully walk along the edge of the tower and get...More

I would commend this...More

Need a tourist atraction with no tourists? Go here! If you are really into trashy sovietic stuff like me, then this place is superb! I heard people comparing it to the TV tower in Tallinn saying the one in Tallinn is way "better" (better as...More
What a load of old rubbish! I've been to lots of attractions similar to this one including London Eye, Paris Eiffel, Vilnius TV tower, and I have never seen any worst than this. The biggest attraction was to get to it. The road is absolute...More
