The Tallinn TV Tower (Tallinna Teletorn) is a building constructed for broadcasting purposes, which was owned and administered by the telecommunication service provider AS Levira (www.levira.ee).
In September 2009, AS Levira established the Tallinn TV Tower Foundation (Sihtasutus Tallinna Teletorn), which received the right of superficies at the TV Tower.
The Tallinn TV Tower is Estonia’s highest building – the tower reaches 314 metres. The purpose of the Tallinn TV Tower foundation is to offer quality tourism, cultural and recreational services at the TV Tower and marketing the TV Tower as an international sight and experience tourism destination. The renovation of the TV Tower was supported by the Ministry of the Interior and the Enterprise Estonia measure for developing cultural and tourism sites of national importance, and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The total cost of the renovation was 6.6 million euros. The TV Tower was reopened on 4 April 2012.
From 1 January 2013, the Tallinn TV Tower is an official member of a prestigious organization, the World Federation of Great Towers.
The highest tower in the federation is the Burj Khalifa – 828 metres. Tallinn TV Tower is 19th among the 40 members in terms of height and also the highest building in Northern Europe open to the public.
