View on map

Hirve Park is one of the most dendrologically diverse parks in Tallinn, and certainly one with an interesting history: it is considered one of the symbols of the restoration of Estonia's independence. It was here that in 1987 people came to openly protest against the Soviet occupation for the first time, presenting the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact between Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany. Famous nationalist meetings were held here calling for Estonia's freedom and playing a huge role in changing the country's history.

Park just outside the old town gates

This is a lovely little garden just outside the old town gates that runs almost parallel to the tram tracks opposite the railway station. I was here during the summer season when the flower festival...

A relaxing garden

A lovely, not too big garden by the walls of the old city. Hige above on the hill you can sit there and relax between the walkings.

Beautiful park in Old Town

The park is a small, quiet retreat with statues and trees all around. Nice place to walk to collect your thoughts. Also great to watch some really remarkable trees close to the Linda Statue.
