Solaris entertainment and lifestyle centre

The Solaris Centre has a colourful history. Built from slate between 1982 and 1985 to the designs of architect Raine Karp, the only part still standing of the original building is the tower on the corner of Rävala Avenue. Once a centre for political education and known by locals as 'Karla Cathedral', it has played host to a number of key events in Estonian history.

The newly reconstructed centre comprises the Nordea Concert Hall, the seven-screen Solaris cinema and the Artis arthouse cinema.

It is also home to the biggest Apollo book store in Estonia, and you will find a range of perfumeries, clothes stores and shoe shops, a jeweller's, a games shop, a florist's, eateries to suit different tastes and a supermarket.

  • Handy centre to get food, not much shopping.

    Handy place to get out of the weather and go grocery shopping or sit down in a cafe. Right in the centre of town and steps from the old town. Not a lot of shopping options here though.

  • Average

    Actually the only reason i'm visiting Solaris is the book shop and the cinema. Its food store is pretty expensive and well other shops and restaurants aren't so cheap too. There is average price...

  • Good for dining

    There isn't a lot of shops but what is there is good. Natural cosmetics shops are lovely. This is a better venue for dining or cinema and has a youthful buzz about it. Nice afternoon venue
