Patarei Merekindlus / ОписаниеSea 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.
Cultural Park Patarei is situated Kalaranna 2
