Russalka, Tallinn
(4.3/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • First time in Tallinn I was 7 years old before school, and "Mermaid" was the most romantic memory of the city. This monument is not the most important site of Tallinn, but arranged children's memory. In memory remained Mermaid on a pedestal, although it is worth not a mermaid, and Angel. "Mermaid" is the name of the deceased battleship of coastal defense. As is often the case in our country, source of some tragedy is stupidity and ignorance of others. The ship actually floating battery on their seaworthy qualities was unsuitable to storm through the Baltic. However, ordered to-done! In September 1893 year "Mermaid" sank in the transition from Reval (Tallinn) in Helsingfors (Helsinki). Monument set in 1902 year efforts of naval officer Vladimir Wulff, whose name is engraved on the tablet on the monument. Money collected throughout the world, however, "with the highest assent" of Nicholas II, which through 3 years will drown in the Tsushima Strait, two of the Pacific Squadron. In the light flooded in Port Arthur 1-th Pacific Squadron-almost the whole of Russia. Sculpted by Amandus Adamson, later the author of the monument to the ships in Sevastopol, engraved on the pedestal of the names of the 12 officers and on the fence-165 names of lower ranks. In Tsarist Russia, and death in the sea is not equalled. Armadillo found recently in 2003, 110 years after the death of the efforts of the Estonian Vjallo enthusiast Mjassa, pereschitavshego parameters of movement of the vessel and the square search. Somewhere stupid mind somewhere.
