Linnahall

A week ago on Thursday, me and my sisters went to Tallinn for a day. We were welcomed by derelict looking but also very intriguing building as we got off the ferry (and climbed what seemed like hundreds of stairs in the sunshine). I managed to find some information about it online.

Linnahall, originally called V. I. Lenin Palace of Culture and Sport, was a concert/sports venue. It is situated on the harbour, just beyond the walls of the Old Town and was completed in 1980 for the summer Olympics. It’s been closed to the public since 2009. There are some confusion over what’s going to happen to the building now since people involved in the regeneration of the building have been arrested over corruption, bribery and tax evasion.
