Had to visit Freedom Square as I recall back in the early 90's brave people congregating here to shake off the shackles of Russia

The Freedom Square hosts the monument that symbolises Estonia’s spirit of perseverance and freedom. It is also 1 of the entrance into the Old Town, where special concerts are held.

We visited freedom square while the Ironman was taking place so the whole area was taken up by tent and and finish line. It is a purpose built park for the eatonians to commemorate the mre freedom from the Soviet Union.

An impressing square. quite big in size with an interesting mix of the spirit of freedom and the religion (A cross and a church)

Was not part of our planned Old Town Tour, glad we found it (by accident). Just outside the wall (South end). War memorial is moving. Worth a few minutes after doing Old Town.

Sits on the outside of Old Town. If in the area- worth seeing. Monuments and flags around give a great feel of Estonia independence.

When walking in Tallinn you will get to Freedom Square, we discovered this on the way to the Kiek in de Koek tower. Prominent in the square is the Vabaduse Monument commemorating the War of Independence.

Freedom square is the main square of the city. Last time I was hear they had a big free concert in the square. Unfortunately nothing planned for the few days I am in Tallinn.
