Tallinn

Metsakalmistu Cemetary

  Kloostrimetsa tee 36 ,   Pirita         more than a year ago

Tallinn’s most famous cemetery, Metsakalmistu was officially opened in 1939. Among its most famous permanent guests are Estonia’s presidents Konstantin Päts and Lennart Meri, writers Lydia Koidula and Anton-Hansen Tammsaare, chess player Paul Keres, composer Raimond Valgre and singer Georg Ots. Even if you don’t visit these celebrity graves, a stroll through the rest of the cemetery is still a fascinating and peaceful experience. The ambiance is especially beautiful here on November 2, All Souls’ Day, and during Christmas when all of the plots are glowing with candles. Take bus N°34A or 38 from Viru Keskus bus terminal (C-4) to the Metsakalmistu or Pärnamäe stops.
