City tour ’Maintenance Hole Covers of Kalamaja’

City tour ’Maintenance Hole Covers of Kalamaja’

We invite those interested to a unique city tour ’Maintenance Hole Covers of Kalamaja’. It is dedicated to the birthday of Curt Siegel’s company Tallinn Phone Network, founded on October 11, 1887.
Within this tour, an authentic maintenance hole cover by the Siegel company will be explored as well.

Maintenance hole covers will be discovered on Thursday, November 12 at 6pm. The tour starts and ends in front of Kalamaja Museum (Kotzebue 16) and is in English!

The excursion will bring to the limelight elements of urban environment, which usually are left unnoticed. Yet in their own silent way, they tell us stories from the past and offer a contrast with their expressive and patient silence to our daily hassles. The tour lasts for 2.5 km and eight maintenance hole covers, one utility pole, one house and one street art work will be viewed.

It is guided by Andres Siplane, a resident of Kalamaja and enthusiast of maintenance hole covers. It lasts 1.5 hours and is free for participants. Pre-registration is necessary, only 20 vacant places. Please register: Group is full!
