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.

  • If you came by car in Tallinn, be sure to visit this site .... very nice view over the entire path. The monument itself is very interesting, but if after visiting the find nearby cafes and sit with a cup of coffee and the view of the Bay, the day turn out to be unforgettable.

  • Monument to the crew of the sunken Russian battleship Rusalka on the shores of the Baltic Sea. In each of its arrival in Tallinn, try to come or come here. And every time the monument opened to me in a new way, he is buried in the LILACS, the gold of autumn trees in the fog. True winter had not seen him even once, it will come in January. Very beautiful monument!
