Russalka, Tallinn

(4.2/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. With our online itinerary creator, Tallinn attractions like Russalka can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
