This year, the Tallinn Old Town Days will be held for the 40th time. To celebrate this anniversary, the organizers and City Centre administration in cooperation with the magazine Kodukiri invite you to participate in the competition “The Most Beautiful Garden in the Old Town”. One wish that the guests of the Old Town Days have expressed times and times again is to see and explore the beautiful and secret inner courtyards of the Old Town. To encourage people to open their gardens for visitors and also give them due recognition, the idea to have a competition “The Most Beautiful Garden in the Old Town” was born. Unlike the festival, the competition will be held for the first time.
TALLINN CITY CENTRE ADMINISTRATION WILL AWARD FINANCIAL PRIZES
1st place – 1000 euros
2nd place – 500 euros
3rd place – 250 euros
The winner will receive a half year subscription to Kodukiri. It goes without saying that Kodukiri will also publish an article along with photos in its summer issue introducing the winning garden.
INFORMATION FOR THE PARTICIPANTS
• The courtyard/garden must be located in Tallinn Old Town and must be open for visitors for three days during the Tallinn Old Town Days so that the voters could see the place.
