The newly-refurbished Terminal D building at Tallinn's passenger ferry harbor is to open Friday after two years' work.
Construction cost €18.5 million and brought a doubling in the terminal's floor area, to 14,000 sq meters, and updated the original facility built in 1996.
Terminal D serves passengers on car ferries between Tallinn and both Sweden and Finland, and saw a through-flow of over 6 million people per annum prior to the work starting, and before the coronavirus pandemic.
Other features include aid for the visually impaired via floor signage, and felt interior in the ceiling to prevent sun glare. According to ETV news show "Aktuaalne kaamera", the amount of felt used could provide around 100,000 sauna hats.
The new D terminal also has a VIP area and will be getting a new, covered car park later on this year
Architects Irina Raud, Ain Kalberg, Anna Temmo and Erkki Tammeleht of R-Konsult were responsible for both internal and external design.
Terminal D is operated by the state-owned Port of Tallinn (Tallinna Sadam).
