Kalevipoeg – War of Independence Monument

The memorial Kalevipoeg to the soldiers who fell in the War of Independence, which was created by sculptor Amandus Adamson, was removed by the Soviet occupation authorities in 1950. A monument of Kreutzwald was erected in the same sport in 1952. Restoration of the statue of Kalevipoeg had been discussed since 1988, but things finally started moving in 2002 after the exhibition ‘Kalevipoeg in Sculpture’. Sculptor Ekke Väli recreated the statue on the basis of photos and experienced sculptor Endel Taniloo helped him as a consultant.
