The 7th Tallinn Flower Festival opens tonight beside the Medieval town walls around the picturesque Tower's Square (Tornide väljak).

A total of 31 flower gardens, featuring the work of local and international landscape designers, will offer exciting ideas for visitors throughout the summer. The themes for this years designs are inspired by themes “Game of Flowers” and “Universal (Garden) Design”. The gardens are designed by teams from home and abroad – including Finland, Ukraine, Germany, Hungary and Belgium.

The festival opens tonight at 17:00 with a concert by Vaiko Eplik and Eliit.

The festival first took place in 2009 and aims to bring beauty, art and music to Tallinn's busy days.

Preparations for the festival started on Tuesday and all 31 gardens can be experienced in their full bloom as they grow and develop until August 28.

In addition to the display, the festival feature an entertainment program.

The Towers' Square is located on the edge of the Tallinn Old Town by Rannamäe and Nunne streets. The Square owes its name to the towers of the Town Wall facing the plaza.
