Freedom Clock in Tallinn

Pictures and text by Mark R. Hatlie

These pictures were taken on 27 June, 2006 near down town Tallinn. I have heard it is referred to as the Freedom Clock and somehow keeps track of the time since independence.

The date on the front of the silver tower is 24 February, 1918, the date that Estonia declared independence during World War One.
The 20th of August is the day when Estonia re-claimed its independence during the coups in the USSR.
