Assistance is needed for moving around in a wheelchair, as the roads have either stone, flintstone or soft covering. During rainy periods, the roads may become impassable. Several of the graves of state and cultural figures are hard to access because of the steps. The roads are better around the chapel. Parking: The Kloostrimetsa Road parking lot near the 3rd gate (state figures) and the chapel's parking lot near the 2nd gate.

The 'Forest Cemetery', located in the Pirita district, is by far Estonia's most famous.  It was established in 1933 and quickly became the favoured resting place of the nation's luminaries. The writer Eduard Vilde was the first to be buried here. Other well-known figures followed suit, including the first president of Estonia, Konstantin Päts, the poet Lydia Koidula, writer Anton-Hansen Tammsaare, chess champion Paul Keres, composer-musician Raimond Valgre and opera singer Georg Ots.

Мы приехали на это кладбище с целью посетить могилу Яака Йоалы. Само по себе это кладбище представляет интерес как часть эстонской культуры. Это сосновый бор. Традиции не предполагают установку... Read more
