Paide, Estonia

Square that Soviet occupiers renamed from Freedom Square to Winners Square :) After restoration of independence Estonians reacted by War of Independence Victory Column that carries Cross of Liberty - ensign that was also used by 20th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS made of Estonians.

Not that I didn't like it, this is just a bit of a non-attraction. Built to commemorate those who fell in the war for Estonian independence, the cross seems to be insufficient to memorialise such a worthy cause. Dare I say it, lit up at night it looks more like a Christmas decoration than a memorial.

As far as design goes freedom square is not an advertisement for Estonian designers. It is possibly the ugliest place in Tallinn and must reflect some boondoggle. The parking lot it replaced was more attractive. However, this area has been the center of important segments of Estonian history since 1538.The monuments within the square celebrate Estonia's War of Independence following World War I.

The new center of Tallinn is now considered to be Freedom Square (Vabaduse väljak). It is a park like area with a very large monument to the war of independence - Estonian Liberation War.
