Moving, but also dangerous

The memorial is a moving tribute to a shipwreck that I had not been previously aware of. An older Estonian woman passing by gave us a little history lesson about the wreck and what it meant to her...

Very touching

Very touching monumet to those people who lost their live in that horrible shipwreck 1994. Scaled to amout of passengers, more people lost their life than shipwreck of Titanic 1912.

Artful memorial

Passed by this memorial by chance while walking back from the harbor to the city center. It’s sad, but beautifully done.
