The Viru Hotel was built in 1972 with a secret floor to house a KGB spying operation. Less than 20 years later, the Soviet Union was dismantled and the offices vacated. Spy equipment and Soviet-era paraphernalia are on display in the exact state in which they were left. The exhibits make for an enlightening introduction into a dark chapter of Estonia’s recent past.
