Tallinn plans new tourist attraction

European funding is to enable the refurbishment of the Tallinn TV tower into a key tourist attraction.

Estonia will benefit from 5.5 million euros from the European Regional Development Fund to help restore the 314-metre tower. It is hoped that the project will be completed by the end of 2011, reports EER News.

"Since its inception, Tallinn's TV tower has been a symbol of the capital," explained Riina Roosipuu, director of the tower's managing foundation.

"From its beginnings the TV tower has been a loved attraction for foreign and domestic tourists."

The tower was closed in 2007 following concerns about safety and a number of fire protection violations but is still regarded as a major symbol in Estonia's political history. In 1991, the tower was a key location in the country's fight for independence.

The European Regional Development Fund has also helped a number of other key projects in Estonia including modernising and improving safety at Tartu airport and Kuressaare airport.
