Memorial to Estonian Independence in August, 1990 in Tallinn

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on 27 June, 2006 in a park on the edge of the old town in Tallinn. It is very close to the Linda statue. This rock was one of the many large boulders placed on the road up to the Domberg (Toompea), the seat of the government and parliament, to protect it from attack by Soviet hardliners in January of 1991.

The date on the stone is the date that independence was re-established. It was during the coups in the USSR.
