    History

    In 1828 Nicholas I of Russia mandated the building of the sea fortress of Patarei. Completed in 1840, it is located on area of 4 hectares (10 acres). Over the years it has had different functions – in 1867 functioning as barracks, in 1920 as a prison and since 2007 as a Culture Park.

    This unique 19th century example of Tallinn’s top architecture has now in the 21st century changed from a longtime symbol of repressions to a favorite place for residents of the nation’s capital and visitors, a multifunctional place to spend free time.

    Visited whilst on a recent visit to Tallinn, this place is fascinating, and you pretty much have free rein to walk over nearly all of the site for a bargain 2 Euros. Can't see this sort of thing being allowed in the UK due to pernickety health and safety reasons.
