The most impressive accomplishment was the closing of the ever-busy Laagna Road that connects two major urban areas in Tallinn. Estonia's various government departments and its Film Institute went above and beyond to accommodate the spy thriller, which has a sprawling cast that includes Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Debicki, and John David Washington.
The monumental Linnahall, featured in the film as "Kyiv Opera House", was initially built as a multifunctional event venue for the Tallinn sailing regatta of the 1980 Moscow Summer Olympics and named V. I. Lenin Palace of Culture and Sports. Its brutalist style and impressive size serve as the perfect location for the movie's intense opening scene.
While the building itself is closed, Linnahall's gorgeous rooftop is a popular hangout spot for the locals, mostly for offering million-dollar views across the bay and the medieval city core for free.
How to get here: Take a short walk from the Port of Tallinn or Old Town, or ride tram number 1 or 2 to the stop "Linnahall".
