A historical and unique sea fortress in Tallinn

In 1828, Nikolai I approved the protection plan of Tallinn, under which a major coastal protection object was built- coast defence batteries. There were already coastal insurances from the Swedish rule in the same location. The construction of the massive building began in 1829 and was completed by 1840. Patarei sea fortress consists of an arched (gorge) and a sharp-angled (lunette) building parts. The arched part of the building looks classicist and rustic with a socket floor, and a symmetrically arranged row of windows. The building, with its outstanding architecture and scalability, is an excellent example of the work of military engineers Etienne-Louis Boullee and Claude-Nicolas Ledoux.
