Additional Information

TallinnHotels is a group that operates three hotels in the capital of Estonia. In June it announced its bankruptcy and that 120 employees would be laid off. The reason is the COVID-19 outbreak and the containment measures to stop the spread of the measure which resulted in closed borders and an instant drop in the number of tourists. The owner of the group stated that such a crisis emerging from the low-season made the business commercially non-viable.
