The construction of Patarei sea fortress was started under the orders of Nicholas I in 1828. Completed in 1840, it started to operate as an artillery battery. Over the years it has had different functions – from 1864 barracks, from 1920 a prison and from 2007 a Culture Park.
This unique 19th century example of Tallinn’s top architecture has now in the 21st century changed from a long-time symbol of repressions to a favourite place for residents of the city and tourists, a multifunctional place to spend free time.
