The island of Naissaar was once a guardian of the ports of Tallinn and home to Estonian-Swedish islanders who depended on fishing, sealing, and occasionally, offered refuge to passing pirates. After the II World War, the Soviet Union declared the island a military area and off-limits to the public. Today, in addition to its beautiful nature, Naissaar hides a number of unique military remnants as well as traces of the island life before the war.
