Tallinn Central Bus Station has its 50th anniversary this year. To celebrate the occasion, commuters can look at unique retro buses from 1960s-1980s.

The oldest vintage bus in the collection is Ikarus 55, which was the most common intercity bus when the station was opened. The youngest bus is Ikarus 255, known as the aquarium, still in use in the 1980s and 1990s. The historical vehicles have been carefully and professionally renovated. Tallinn Bus Station was opened in 1965. These days it services over three million passangers and over 200 intercity and international lines a year.
