'Russalka' monument

Address: Narva maantee, Tallinn | Show on map

The 'Russalka' monument is a memorial in classic style to those who lost their lives on the Russian navy vessel of the same name. It is situated just opposite Kadriorg Park in Tallinn. The sculpture, created by Amandus Adamson in 1902, was placed by the sea where the promenade from Kadriorg Palace comes down to meet the Bay of Tallinn. The monument depicts an angel pointing an Orthodox cross in the direction of the sunken ship.
Did you know...? *During the Soviet era the Orthodox cross was removed from the statue, which simply indicated the direction of the Russalka with its now empty hand
