  • This Memorial is dedicated to the feats of our sailors, better still in the year 1918, during the occupation of Estonia, another of Kaiser's Germany. They brought a valuable cargo in Kronstadt on the order of Lenin. The great patriotic war, as many believe, the Memorial has nothing to do. Later, during World War II, were buried at this place and our Soviet soldiers, and German. Through 70 years after winning it looks symbolic. All reconcile and upokoilo. And invaders, and liberators.

  • Very heavy impressions. Especially from the fact that, together with commemorative plates, stands a memorial to SOVIET soldiers the fascists. Went from there silently and suppressed.

  • Near the Maarjamae Palace standing by Obelisk that is. Memorial to those who died to defend the Soviet Union's height is 35 m, so noticeable from a distance. And gutter maintenance is not so close, had become off limits.

  • Good sightseeing place (must visit!)
  • Great coastal views. Restricted access due to some casualties with the deteriorating structure. Ask the locals about it's history.
  • Maarjamäe Memorial is partially closed now due to risk of collapsing and other accidents. Memorial itself has a dark history or mass graves and destruction of graves and exhuming bodies. Russian Red army had buried there and German (Nazi) army dug them out and took unknown location and once Estonia was under Soviet ruling Russians destroyed the German/Estonian graves on that location and built this Maarjamäe memorial for "all who fought for Estonian freedom". Since to Estonians there was no freedom in Soviet union this memorial does not mean that to us so it has turned into ruins. Plan is to soon build an actual memorial for Estonians who died as victims of communism in Estonia and outside of it (those who were deported to Siberia) and whose graves to this day have remained unknown.
  • Good view and nothing more. Old and dangerous.
  • Great view to sea and beatiuful landscape
