KGB Museum

Viru Valjak 4, Tallinn

The Basics

The secret room wasn’t discovered until 1994, but, luckily it is perfectly preserved since the Communist members fled the country. On this guided tour, you’ll discover how hotel guests were unknowingly spied on (some 60 hotel rooms, as well as restaurant tables, had concealed espionage devices hidden in them), and the complicated history of the Cold War in Estonia.
