Overview
More
The 'Russalka' monument is a memorial in classic style to those who lost their lives on the Russian navy vessel of the same name. It is situated just opposite Kadriorg Park in Tallinn. The sculpture, created by Amandus Adamson in 1902, was placed by the sea where the promenade from Kadriorg Palace comes down to meet the Bay of Tallinn. The monument depicts an angel pointing an Orthodox cross in the direction of the sunken ship. Did you know...? *During the Soviet era the Orthodox cross was removed from the statue, which simply indicated the direction of the Russalka with its now empty hand

Nice park to take stroll with your dog. The statue is beautifully sculpted. It's little bit outside the city center.

If you happen to be visiting the art museum, this is located a short walk from it. It's a memorial to the people lost in the sinking of the Russalka ship into the Baltic Sea about 120 years ago. It's situated in a nice park...More

This is an impressive monument on a nice day, I don’t think it is worth it on a gray day. It commemorates a maritime disaster.

We took the ferry terminal road and reached the promenade along the sea. It has a great view to the bay area.

Near the see a small statue from which starts a nice running alley alongside the sea. Not so far from the old town.

This is a very pretty statue at the waterfront. The story goes that it marks the location of where a boat sank. Not otherwise a lot to see here.

This is a great monument to mark the ninth anniversary of the sinking of the Russian warship Rusalka. It is still a mystery how it sank.
