Viru Hotel in Tallinn

If you're interested in authentic spy history, a new museum in Tallinn opened this month on the top floor of Hotel Viru that might interest you. The museum preserves the equipment and rooms the KGB used to eavesdrop and spy on individuals for the first 20 years of the hotel's existence. The tour of the museum includes stories about the hotel and local KGB history - a history which becomes richer as visitors add their recollections, experiences, and knowledge about the time period and the city.

A full description of the inspiration for the KGB museum can be found on the Sokos Hotels website.
