  Tallinn Song Festival
by Ben-UK
 
 

I was fortunate to be in Tallinn this year (2004) when the Estonian Song & Dance Festival was held -- it's held every 5 years.

Thousands of folk singers and dancers, bedecked in national costume, flock to the festival grounds from all over Estonia for a celebration of the country's musical traditions.

This year, 796 choirs and 51 orchestras performed during the 2 day festival.

Should you be in Tallinn next time it's held you must visit -- a great opportunity to experience Estonian folklore.

Address: Festival Grounds, Pirita Road, Tallinn

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
