Linnahall

Linnahall is a former concert/sports venue in Tallinn, Estonia.

The 22nd Summer Olympic Games were hosted in Moscow in 1980. As inland Moscow had no suitable venue at which to stage the sailing event this task fell to Tallinn.

A lot of sports and entertainment facilities were built during preparations for the Olympics. One of them was V. I. Lenin Palace of Culture and Sport, which was later renamed to its present name – Linnahall.

It’s a large concrete brutalist structure, designed by Raine Karp and Riina Altmäe.
