    This striking monument on Kadriorg’s shore is a memorial to those lost when armoured ship Russalka sank in 1893.

    A storm hit the ship as it was headed from Tallinn to Helsinki, taking the lives of all 177 crewmen. The Russalka sculpture by A. Adamson was completed in 1902 and is considered one of the classics of Estonian art.

      Just wondered past, good place to remember the lives lost, not necessarily a place that needs it's own visit. Has some nice benches nearby that look out to the port and the strait of Finland

      Monument built in tribute to those who were lost at sea. We stumbled across it as we were taking a stroll along the promenade. Very impressive although possibly not worth a specific trip to it.

      It's a monument next to the sea and in between old town Tallinn and Pirita. If you have plenty of time, ok to scroll through, but no need. Take a peek if you are passing by should be enough.
