In 1828 Nicholas I of Russia mandated the building of the sea fortress of Patarei. Completed in 1840, it is located on an area of 4 hectares (10 acres). Over the years it has had different functions—in 1867 functioning as a 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.

Taken with a Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR, Canon 16-35mm lens at 17mm. +2 0 -2 brackets for HDR. Mounted on a Nodal Ninja 5. Stitched with PTGui.
