Russalka, Tallinn

4.3
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.

  • Very beautiful Monument standing on the Boulevard in Kadriorg Park, which is dedicated to the Russian sailors 177-the crew of the battleship Rusalka who sank not far from this place 7 September 1893 year. No one survived. Residents of the city have collected money to build a nice monument basin of pink granite and towering above it granite rock on which stands a bronze Angel holding a gilded cross in his right hand and looking at the sea, like saves the eternal rest of the dead. Height-16 meters. It all looks very majestic and dignified, because all the names of the dead inscribed on the monument. The monument is surrounded by chains. beautiful illuminated lanterns and fence of the cutest living Pines. No accident this place always is popular among locals and tourists.

  • This monument is a real work of art. The organic shapes of the rocks combined with the sharp, regular lines of the blocks was very appealing.
  • Very nice place near the Sea where You can see nice Sea and ships and nice monument!
  • A beautiful memorial to heroic seamen and their tragedy. It is very nice and appropriate, postioned right on the shore. If you are exploring the Kadriorg park like, that would be a good walking target.
  • In fact Russalka was a name of the ship and this is a monument for their crew. On the other hand it's a well known meeting place especially for the people attending gigs at Tallinna lauluväljak which is pretty close.
  • Great monument. Very good place to see sea
