The Tallinn Television Tower in Pirita is the tallest building in Tallinn and Estonia with 314 metres. The TV Tower is a great tourist, culture and leisure centre.
Waiting for you at the tower: a panoramic view from 170 metres, brasserie/restaurant and terrace on the 22nd floor; interactive multimedia solutions that introduce Estonia and Tallinn; view of the ground through the glass floor of the platform; futuristic interior milieu; attractions for children; mini TV studio, gift shop.
They did a good job in 2012. Now the viewing platform and the entrance of the tower look way better than they used to. Do not miss the cafe in there, either.
If the tallest object you've ever climbed is an oak tree, then Tallinn's TV tower is very exciting. If you happen to have already been up in a tall object somewhere else in the world, then it's lame...
This was a side trip I was glad to have taken. It's relatively inexpensive, gives you fantastic 360-degree views of Tallin and had a very interesting exhibit while I was there in January 2016...
