On 20th of June, after a successful testing period, a unique air ride Balloon Tallinn was opened to public. A spectacular panoramic view over the Old Town, city centre, park Kadriorg and the sea opens from the gondola of the gigantic helium filled balloon situated in the cruise area of the Port of Tallinn.
The viewing platform i.e. the gondola of Balloon Tallinn filled with helium and anchored to the ground can accommodate up to 30 people and allows passengers to enjoy panoramic views from the height of 120 metres. This is to become the highest open outdoor platform in the centre of Tallinn. In clear weather, the visibility from the Balloon Tallinn gondola will be over 40 kilometres. This is the highest open-air viewpoint in the Tallinn city centre and the most northern attraction of its kind in Europe.
“On the international level Balloon Tallinn is a strong trump for Tallinn in a competition for tourists between neighbour capitals like St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Riga, Stockholm or Copenhagen. Definitely this unique attraction will attract a big number of tourists and will sure make them revisit Tallinn,” said vice-chairman of the Estonian Hotel and Restaurant Association board Feliks Mägus.
The environmentally friendly high-tech ride, one of its kind in the Nordic countries, is situated in the area between Terminal A and cruise ships’ pier of the Port of Tallinn. The manufacturer of the Balloon Tallinn, Lindstrand Technologies Ltd. (LTL) is the world leading creator and producer of the most advanced lighter-than-air airships and inflatable structures.
