The parking lot next to Russalka has 15 cm steep curbstones along the whole length.

This striking monument on Kadriorg’s shore is a memorial to those lost when armoured ship Russalka sank in 1893.

A storm hit the ship as it was headed from Tallinn to Helsinki, taking the lives of all 177 crewmen. The Russalka sculpture by A. Adamson was completed in 1902 and is considered one of the classics of Estonian art.
