A beautiful square in the city center of Tallinn!
The space is open and large, where you will also find the St. John's Church and the War of Independence Victory Column.

It is easy to reach by bus and you can walk straight into Old Town from this point.

Visited whilst on a stop over in Tallinn on a cruise. Picturesque medieval town with large square surrounded by old buildings. Many of the buildings have a plaque on the wall with its history in English. Sturdy shoes required as lots of cobbles.

The fusion of old-world architecture and vibrant energy creates an inviting space where locals and visitors mingle, cafes spill onto cobblestones, and the day seamlessly transitions into a magical night. This square isn't just a historic site; it's an experience that encapsulates Estonia's resilience and pride, a must-visit gem in Tallinn for anyone seeking a blend of culture and vitality.

The Freedom Monument overlooks Freedom Square, a large open space formerly used for parades on Soviet holidays. It was unveiled in 2009 to commemorate the struggles of the Estonian independence movement of 1918-20 against Germany and Soviet Russia.
The structure comprises a large cross mounted on a 24-meter-high pillar of dimpled glass and sort of looks like an ice sculpture that is on the verge of melting – a deliberate effect meant to signify the movement’s fragile nature.
It is, however, a slightly controversial piece of work, with some Tallinn natives regarding it as too ostentatious.

Great new years event with live music by local groups. The square was packed with people dancing to the music and having a good time. It was nice to see that as a tourist coming here for the new years under these freezing temperatures. Good times

Freedom Square is a popular pedestrian meeting place that features the Monument to the War of Independence.

Throughout the years, the square has had various names, including Heinaturg (Hay Market), Peetri Plats (Peter's Square), and Võiduväljak (Victory Square). It was officially named Freedom Square in 1939, a name it held until 1948. The name was reinstated in 1989.

The defensive structures uncovered during archaeological excavations have been preserved and stored in the underground parking lot beneath the square. Visitors can catch a glimpse of the remains of the guard gates of the defense tower at the end of Harju Street through a glass screen.

Freedom Square has had different names at different times throughout history. In Russian times it was victory square, when Estonia ruled it was named as it is now.

The gigantic glass cross on the square was built to commemorate the Estonian victims of the war of independence (which led to the foundation of the first republic).

Fun fact: Estonia was back then a real pioneer of LGBTIQ+ rights and even decriminalized homosexuality in 1918 (this was later revoked).

We always enjoy Freedom Square when we go to Tallinn. It's beautiful in every season. After all, what's not to like? It has an historic church, a stone staircase, modern architecture, shops, and in winter a icerink.
