What You Can See From Kohtuotsa Viewing Platform
Kohtuotsa Viewing Platform is a large Terrace area that offers stunning views of the whole city. You can see the the hustle and bustle of the town below along with the Gulf of Finland as the backdrop.
This special part of Tallinn overlooks the signature red roofs, as well as the high-rise buildings in the newest part of the city. However, the view is not the only thing that attracts people to this viewpoint. There is a pastel pink wall beside the landscape with a catchy quote ‘the times we had’.
In the very distance, you can spot the ocean which is the Gulf of Finland, then the port and the Pirita district.
This, along with Patkuli viewing platform seem to be the two most popular places to see Tallinn from above. It was a really cool place to hang out and is completely free to visit.
During the summer season, outdoor cafe and dance evenings take over the space. However, you are always guaranteed unforgettable views, no matter what the weather.
