Meet Solaris centre
Your top location for an international conferences - Solaris Tallinn - is situated in the most modern building of the heart of Tallinn – the entertainment and life style centre Solaris, established in fall 2009. Architecturally fascinating, spacious and bright Solaris centre offers a spectrum of pastime facilities on all of its five floors.
Everything comfortably at hand
You will find Estonia’s widest food court in service of your delegates in Solaris – a dozen of restaurants and cafes, including the cosy Komeet alongside a unique rooftop park, and with a wonderful view on the Old Town.
Solaris makes a great choice for life style shopping, with a number of apparel and other shops located conveniently at hand. The centre also houses Tallinn’s largest bookstore and a well-assorted grocery with the most impressive wine selection in town.
Best-equipped for any event
As a regular venue for most of the top concerts, performances and shows, the Solaris centre has quickly evolved into the centre spot of the cultural and entertainment life of Tallinn. This is largely to fact that Solaris holds the best-equipped performance hall in the Nordics, with the electronic acoustics fine-tuned by the Grammy-winning sound director John Pellowe – the man behind decades of great sound at Pavarotti concerts all over the world.
Right after the opening of the centre, Solaris was granted the privilege of hosting the 2010 European Film Awards, the annual highlight celebration of European film industry, several main events of the Tallinn European Capital of Culture 2011 programme, as well as many other international and local functions.
Home for exclusive events
A quick rise to major popularity has also accompanied the seven-screen Solaris multiplex, equipped with state-of-the-art sound and projection technology, and the largest 3D screen in Tallinn. As of the opening, Solaris cinema centre has also become the “home theatre” to the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
The choreography and fitness facility Tallinn Dance Academy and the Press Centre of Tallinn City Government are also operating in the building. In addition, one of the most viewed television talk-shows is broadcast every night straight from an open studio inside the centre.
