Original Sokos Hotel Viru Celebrates Its 50-Year Anniversary with special offers during its anniversary year in 2022:

  • Jubilee conference & Coffee break – During Viru’s anniversary year in 2022, all conference organisers received a gift – a tour of the hotel & KGB Museum or welcome beverages. Chef de cuisine Margus Tammpere prepared a special coffee break service – a symbiosis of the current era’s new trends and legendary classics. From duck bao to a sumptuous buttery pastry a la Merineitsi.
  • Anniversary beverages– To celebrate the 50th anniversary, a selection of truly unique festive beverages were fermented, incl an exclusive sparkling wine, and ciders from the acclaimed Jaanihanso Cider House.
  • The 50th anniversary cabaret called Crème de la Crème – the Starlight Cabaret’s greatest hits. It’s a colourful selection of the heart-stealing best of past eras. The anniversary programme ran until 23 April 2022.
  • Birthday cake – Chef de cuisine Margus Tammpere paid homage to the classic confectionery traditions of the early years of the hotel – the impossibly airy and swirly zephyr confections that were a favourite sweet for an entire generation.
  • Pop-up Exhibitions at the legendary KGB museum.
  • Jubilee sauna- Going to the sauna with friends has always been part of Estonian culture – both during Soviet times and during independence. The combination of steam off the hot rocks and good company shouldn’t ever be underestimated. Viru’s three saunas are the only ones outside Finland that have been issued AUTHENTIC FINNISH SAUNA EXPERIENCE certificates.
  • Special events
