Bastion passages in the Tallinn Old Town

The mysterious passages in Tallinn’s earthwork fortifications were built along with the bastions in the 17th and 18th centuries to conceal the movement of soldiers, ammunition, and other equipment from the enemy. They were also used to monitor the enemy’s underground activities of planting mines. After the fortifications were removed from the list of military objects in 1857, parks were established on the Ingrian and Swedish bastions.
In the bastion passages, a train to the future takes you to the year 2219 and back to the 17th century. The passages are only accessible with a guide throughout the year. In the summer, individual visitors can enter the Steinrelief-Museum, which is located in the Ingrian bastion passage, via Freedom Square.
