On November 30 the ESU Estonia members visited the Sokos Viru Hotel and the KGB Museum. We met at the Bogart Bar for a glass of wine, some snacks and a talk. The manager, Mr. Jarvi told us a little bit about the history of the hotel, which is still the biggest hotel in Estonia, and showed us two renovated hotel rooms with a fantastic view on the Old Town.The excursion to the Museum started on the ground floor, where we were given tickets with two vouchers on some drinks in any hotel bar and cafe. The guide told young people and reminded the older ones what life was like in Estonia more than thirty years ago. We saw quite many artifacts of those days in the Museum. We enjoyed not only a lively excursion but a wonderful view from the 23rd floor on our beautiful city.
