Sea fortress Patarei (Battery) is a unique monument of architecture. The defence system completed in 1840 by order of Emperor Nicholas I has preserved its beautiful limestone facade. With the development of technology the fortress lost its value as defence structure and became a barrack for soldiers from different army units. Special period for Patarei arrived in 1919 when the fortress became a prison. Because of its two meter walls, Patarei suited very well for that purpose. It was also used by all foreign powers occupying Estonia. Patarei has preserved its original Soviet interior that is of interest both to local people and tourists from abroad. Year 2006 brough new winds to Patarei. Culture Park Patarei brings special atmosphere inside the walls of the fortress and around them. Concerts, parties, theatre performances, exhibitions, handicraft making will take place here. Here you can also find the first seaside summer cafe of Tallin.

Emperor Peter I (1672-1725) expanded the borders of the Russian Empire in the course of the Northern War and managed to annex the whole Estonian territory by the year 1710. Therefore the protection of the new border areas became the priority of the ruler and he paid a lot of attention to the reconstruction of ports in Tallinn and Paldiski and visited Tallinn several times. Together with the site of the would-be palace, a summer estate and a 17th-century cottage that had belonged to town councillor von Drenteln were purchased for the emperor's use in 1713. The small cottage was enlarged with a wing and the outcome was a building with a hall, a kitchen and four rooms. The small summer residence was in use until the emperor's death. The succeeding rulers used the Palace of Kadriorg that had been completed only after Peter's death and the small building was neglected. The building was restored at the order of Emperor Alexander I after he visited Tallinn in 1804. The wing, however, was not. The kitchen was reconstructed and a dining room was built above it on the first floor that had not existed before.

The view from Tallinn TV Tower is unique in Estonia as well as in all of Northern Europe. Under your feet are the woods of Muuga. The captivating Tallinn Old Town and the glistening Baltic Sea in all of its majestic glory are off in the distance. When Estonia was still behind the Iron Curtain, this was for many Estonians a window on the free world – at night one could even catch sight of the lights of Helsinki. To illustrate the view, visitors can use multimedia screens: to increase the area visible in it or seeing what the place looked like in the past. It is a view that must be seen. And – experienced!
