  • In memory of the 852 who perished

    This broken black arch on the bluff next to the Fat Margaret was erected in memory of the 852 people who perished in the sinking of the ferry Estonia for unkown reasons during its Talinn - Stockholm...

  • Sad Memorial

    If you are old enough you may remember the tragic shipping accident that this memorial commemorates. Not far from Fat Margaret Tower, and of course the port, so worth looking out for.

  • Meaningful

    A simple, yet meaningful monument of the still recent tragedy. You can learn more about the disaster in the Seaplane Harbour.
