Overview

The monument depicts the balcony of the historical Endla Theatre in the original size. The authors K. Eelma, M. Aas and M. Mutso have chosen the sturdy granite as the material. One of the most important aims of the monument was to make the message or the text of the manifest visible. The manifest of independence is written on the wall of the balcony in the old and modern language, and Braille. "Manifesto to the Peoples of Estonia" was publicly read out for the first time on February 23, 1918 from the balcony of the Endla Theatre and Society House which stood where Parnu Hotel is today.

This is most likely to be interesting to an Estonian but is rather uninteresting as a foreign visitor as there is not much to tell

Reconstructed main entrance in old Hotel, where long time ago Estonians claimed their independence. Near by the gate is short description and the picture from the past. Nice idea how not to forget.

Historical place, maybe a bit to modern.... Children like a lot visit this stage and sing something. Maybe is it possible to add some nice spot lights for the night time and some benches around?
