Soviet Era Tour

View on map

The Soviet occupation of Estonia was not that long ago. Most people still remember this difficult period with its controversial experiences. Today, architecture from that period can still be seen in every county with the central buildings of former large agricultural enterprises, culture houses, the so-called khrushchyovka apartment buildings, and more.

In order to not completely forget this era, we recommend this tour to explore the historical, political, and ideological paradoxes which were common for that time.
