Monument To Sir Sean Connery In Tallinn

Nefer • 3 minutes read • October 19th, 2016
This monument to Sir Sean Connery was an absolute surprise to me. At first, I did not even realize it was him. However, the inscription on the pedestal included his name. As I took a closer look, it really did look like the famous actor. Such a surprise!

The monument was located in the courtyard in front of the "Leib Resto & Aed" restaurant of the Scottish Club (Šoti Klubi). The bust was erected in honor of the 80th anniversary of Mr. Connery, in January 2011. The famous Scotsman was created by Tiiu Kirsipuu.

Not far from it, there was another bust, of the Scottish poet Robert Burns.

Here's a landmark: the Tower behind Hattorpe. Thanks to it, we were able to look into the courtyard :)
