Named after the Russalka Ship on which many people lost their lives at the Gulf of Finland, the Russalka monument is quiet a sight with a 16-meter sculpture of an angel placed on a granite pillar.
The monument was built in the early 20th century with the statue holding across and figuratively pointing towards the shipwreck. In the evenings, the beauty of the monument magnifies with warm lights illuminating the gorgeous structure.

Beautiful monument by the sea on the Tallinn promenade that commemorates the victims of the "Russalka", a warship that sunk in the Gulf of Finland. The bronze statue on a rock like pedestal represents an angel holding a Orthodox cross pointing in the supposed direction of the shipwreck. The inscriptions at the base of the pedestal are on one side in Russian and on the other one in Estonian. A friend told me that a Rusalka is a female creature of the Slavic folklore frequently associated with water and sea (like a siren). You can reach it by walk from the Kadriorg Art Museum.
Nice statue, but now rebuild a territory and complicated found the good way.
Please like my review if helpful 👍 The Russalka Memorial is a beautiful monument erected to those lost when the Russian ship so named sank in a storm and is not really a war memorial as others believe. The monument is really well maintained as are most public erections, parks and open spaces. You can reach the Memorial down the end of a walkway through the adjacent park by the seafront
Wonderful beach nearby. Only drawback is the rubbish. Seems like they could need some rubbish bins around, spent some time picking up litter.. otherwise a great place with a nice view
Nice scenery and a beach to hang out with soft sand. Good for kids.
