    Historical monument in a beautiful park

    Lydia Koidula was a true Estonian poetess and this might be one of the reasons the statue is located in a beautiful park. Definitely worthwhile visiting and taking time to be there.

    Nostalgic place between the nature.

    It is good place to visit this park with friends or children. I recommend to buy with you some donuts and juice close to this place (local people can help to find the right place ;-)).
