Maybe because the area was undergoing refurbishment works, it was quite unpleasant visiting. Further Rialka is just a statie amidst a heavy boulevard and can't impress.

Nice commemoration statue by the sea, but there were road works all around when we visited. You can still get close to the statue (for free) and get a nice picture, but it's a little "off" from the city center and I probably wouldn't go here just for the statue. Nice to pass by if you're visiting Kadriorg palace or garden though.

Statue is dedicated to a Russian war ship that sunk 1893 in a storm and memorial was built 1902. Ship took its entire crew of 177 souls to the bottom and actual reason of sinking reason remains unknown.
You can easily combine visit to Kadrioga with Russalka. Further 3 km is interesting memorial: Memorial to the Victims of Communism which gives good contrast to this memorial.

Beautiful monument by the sea on the Tallinn promenade that commemorates the victims of the "Russalka", a warship that sunk in the Gulf of Finland. The bronze statue on a rock like pedestal represents an angel holding a Orthodox cross pointing in the supposed direction of the shipwreck. The inscriptions at the base of the pedestal are on one side in Russian and on the other one in Estonian. A friend told me that a Rusalka is a female creature of the Slavic folklore frequently associated with water and sea (like a siren). You can reach it by walk from the Kadriorg Art Museum.
