Tallinn's Forest Cemetery

Tallinn's Forest Cemetery was established in Kloostrimetsa as a public cemetery in 1933. Its planning was based on natural forms, with grand structures avoided save for the final resting place of the family of President Konstantin Päts and the memorial to the victims of fascism. The only building in the cemetery is a slate chapel.

The first person to be buried in the cemetery was author Eduard Vilde on 30 December 1933. It has separate burial areas for writers, artists, actors, athletes and other public figures.

    A cemetery

    Although many famous Estonians have been buried there, it's still just a cemetary, in a pine forest, but still a cemetery.

    Viktig sted for å lære estisk kultur

    Der viktigste kirkegården i Estland. Mange estiske kulturpersonligheter er begravd der. Ved inngangen er det plan over kirkegården hvor man ser hva kan besøkes. Hele kirkegården er fredelig, som park...

    Кладбище в лесу

    Очень чистое, тихое и спокойное кладбище. Тут похоронены многие известные эстонцы. По указателям легко найти любую могилу. Было совсем мало, когда мы тут гуляли. Возможно, всех напугал дождик.
