The Communist history of Tallinn can be hard to pick up in the modern city, but this fantastic tour will unlock the fascinating communist past. We explore the scenes which hosted the essential events, and where tales both terrifying and hilarious played out. This tour will dish out the history and politics, but will also give you real-life tales from locals about what it was like to live in Communist Tallinn. Some of the stories will shock you, some are so absurd they will make you laugh! Included Sights: Sõprus Harju street The Writers Union Sõprus Building KGB HQ City Hall Russian Embassy Viru Hotel

Risto is a Witty student, patient teacher, hard worker, competitive Athlete, opportunistic adventurer, and yet, only human after all. Jonas is a world citizen who loves nothing more than rambling about the history of Tallinn and Estonia.
