The Baltic Way: 25 – Stories of Tilde Employees

On 23 August 1989, the three nations living by the Baltic Sea surprised the world. More than a million people joined hands to create a 600 km long human chain from Tallinn to Vilnius, crossing Riga and the River Daugava on its way, creating a synergy in the drive for freedom that united the three countries. Commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Baltic Way, Tilde would like to share its very own memories from this special event.
