The Viru Gates - Entrance to the Old Town

Viru gate. This pair of picturesque, ivy-covered towers at the beginning of Viru ... into Old Town – is often the very first glimpse visitors get of historic Tallinn.

The Russalka Memorial in Tallinn

The Russalka Memorial is a bronze monument sculpted by Amandus Adamson, erected on 7 September 1902 in Kadriorg, Tallinn, to mark the ninth anniversary of the sinking of the Russian warship Rusalka, or "Mermaid", which sank en route to Finland in 1893.
