Once upon a time, there was a hotel called Viru. The year was 1972 and a little less than 20 years remained until the end of the Soviet era. The hotel for foreigners also had to suit the national security body – KGB …
In the 1960s the Soviet authorities decided to bring some of the billions circulating in global tourism to the USSR. The country needed hotels suitable for foreigners, and these hotels had to accommodate KGB as well. The Viru Hotel, open in 1972, is full of various stories – stories about the hotel itself, Soviet society and the development of Estonia.
