It was not worth going to see Russalka alone, but it is close the Park with its art gallery and the house of Tsar Nicolas. You can see the beach as well as the Cruise Ships from the statue.

Nice statue by the beach which is only a 5 min walk from the place. The walk is through the park and it's very peaceful. Highly recommend that you take the short walk to this statue as well and enjoy the breeze from the sea.
