Tallinn

The monument to the War of Independence

  Vabaduse väljak     29 Oct 2018
After many delays and not without a certain amount of controversy, the freedom monument was officially unveiled to much fanfare at midnight on June 22, 2009. The 26m structure built from imported Czech glass was modelled after the 'Cross of Liberty', an honour bestowed upon individuals who helped Estonia gain her independence back in 1920. Winston Churchill was even a holder of the 'Cross of Liberty'. It's quite a spectacular monument, but to see it in all it's glory you should check it out at night when it's all lit up.
