About Russalka, Tallinn
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.

Russalka, Tallinn Reviews
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
