Tallinn’s 800th anniversary celebrations

Add to Favourites Your favourite!

Tallinn City Museum celebrates the first recorded mention of the city with new exhibitions, thematic excursions and an outdoor theatre spectacle.  

Tallinn was first mentioned in 1219 in the Chronicle of Latvian Henrik. The chronicle describes when the Danish fleet led by King Valdemar II landed near Lindanise castle in June 1219. According to the chronicle, there was a battle at the location of what would become Tallinn on June 15, 1219 where the Danes won a difficult victory. The legend says that luck smiled upon the Danes after a red flag with a white cross fell from the sky — the Danneborg, the state flag of Denmark today (History of Tallinn).
