Entrance into the EAMT building

The main entrance to the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre is on Sakala street. This is the Great Hall entrance, which will be the main entrance for the duration of the conference.

If necessary, it is also possible to use the entrance on Rävala Street, which is the entrance from the EAMT old building, but we suggest using the Concert Hall entrance, as this gives easier access to our conference rooms, concert hall and lobby.

Song Festival Grounds

In 1869 Johann Voldemar Jannsen established the Estonian Song Festival while the nation was still a province of the Russian Empire. This festival was considered responsible for fostering an Estonian national awakening. After that, the new tradition was born and the festivals are still held every five years.

The Glass Hall is the main hall of the Song Festival Grounds. It is very spacious, light and has a beautiful view. The different planes and unique architecture of the hall allow to create a festive room for parties or a formal room for conferences and workshops.

St. John's Church

The bright yellow, neo-Gothic church that dominates Freedom Square is a true survivor among the city's churches.

Despite two attempts to tear it down in the last century, it has persevered and is likely to be around for a long time to come.

The idea for St. John's church first came about in the mid-19th century when the city's growing population of ethnic Estonians made the Holy Spirit Church too small for its congregation. A new church, which at the pastor's suggestion was named for St. John the Evangelist, was founded.

The smart design of the altar and the painting Christ on the Cross and the chandeliers, which are older than the building itself, make the church radiant.

The oldest church bell with an Estonian text is also located in the church tower (1872). 

The church has wonderful acoustics and 3 pipe organs. A new Choir Organ was built in 2005 by the German organ experts, Orgelbau in Ostfrieslandwith, with which began the restauration process. After the Choir Organ, the Grand Organ (built in 1867) was restored in 2009. In addition, Orgelbau in Ostfriesland restored the Echo Organ as well.
