Russalka represents a memorial to the imperial sailors who lost their lives when the namesake ship was sunk in the nearby Gulf of Finland. Visit the statue, situated near Tallinn's Kadriog Park, and you'll find a carved stone monument topped by a bronze angel. The seaside area was chosen to represent the memory of the men aboard ship and their connection to the ocean. Note the Orthodox cross in the angel's hand (Estonia at the time was a part of the Russian empire), which points toward the final resting place of the wreck and her crew.
