Linnahall (Estonian: Tallinna Linnahall, 'Tallinn City Hall') (originally the V. I. Lenin Palace of Culture and Sports) is a multi-purpose venue in Tallinn, Estonia. It is situated in the harbour, just beyond the walls of the Old Town, and was completed in 1980. It is not to be confused with the primary administrative building of the historical municipal government (Raad) of Tallinn, often referred to as the Town Hall. The venue also features a heliport and a small sea port (formerly used by Copterline and Linda Line for connections to Helsinki).
The 1980 Summer Olympics were hosted in Moscow in 1980. As inland Moscow had no suitable venue at which to stage the sailing event, this task fell to Tallinn, the capital of the then Estonian SSR. Apart from the main venue for the sailing event, Pirita Yachting Centre, a number of other sports and entertainment facilities were erected, among them the V. I. Lenin Palace of Culture and Sport. designed by architects Raine Karp and Riina Altmäe.
The skating rink closed in 2009, followed by the concert hall in 2010. The city searched for investors from 2009 to 2015, and in 2015 the city council decided to renovate Linnahall, although the project did not come to fruition.
