Tammsaare Park

Tammsaare Park is located in the centre of Tallinn, between the Estonia Theatre and Viru Keskus shopping centre. In 1896, one corner of the park became the new site of Tallinn's market, which was formerly located on Town Hall Square. From 1903-1905 the park was home to a giant wooden 'Interimstheater' - a barn-type hall that was a venue for theatre performances and cinema screenings.

When this building burnt down, the space was landscaped and pathways were constructed.

In 1978 a statue of A. H. Tammsaare was erected in the centre of the park, designed by Soans and Luup), to mark the Estonian author's 100th birthday.

There are 46 species of trees and bushes in the park, including a number of rare trees. The park was placed under protection in 2004.

    Парком это место назвать сложно, скорее - сквер. Многократно пересекал его, и даже не догадывался, что это парк имени писателя. Если бы не памятник Тамсааре, был бы ничем не выделяющийся сквер, коих...
