Tallinn's TV Tower hosted a fireworks display Thursday night, August 20, marking the annual Restoration of Independence day celebrations. The show coincided with a rock concert at the nearby Song Festival Grounds.
The pyrotechnics were visible from anywhere the TV Tower can also be seen, which would include locations some distance outside the capital, and kicked off at 9.45 p.m. as rock legends Ruja closed out their show at the Song Festival Grounds.
The show was provided by Finnish company Pyrocom.
Restoration of Independence Day refers to the 1991 reassertion of Estonian independence, as opposed to Independence Day, which is celebrated on February 24 each year.
The TV Tower is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, as it was completed in time for the 1980 Moscow Olympics, whose sailing events were held in nearby Pirita.
