As we paddle past 8 ports, with a collection of military vessels, including Estonia’s own WWII-era submarine, „Lembit”, we’ll get a glimpse of Peter the Great’s marine castle and Patarie – the seldom visited but infamous NKVD prison.
A welcome next stop will be Paljasaare Peninsula, with a walk on sandy Pikakari beach, Tallinn’s closest bird watching area. From there, we’ll paddle back to the city – enjoying the sweep of graceful architecture - towers, spires, and the onion dome of the Russian Orthodox cathedral – that still punctuates the rapidly changing skyline.
