Traveling there happened by ferry from Helsinki to Tallin in a very foggy weather. We truely experienced a feeling of going towards the unknown - because of fog we concretely didn`t see the way ahead of us! From Tallinn, after some adventures of being in a wrong place at a wrong time, we succeeded in catching boat Monica that took us to Naissaar.
Naissaar is an island located near Tallinn, 10 km away from the Estonian coast. The name of the island means "Island of women". Naissaar has a military history and the traces of it are visible all around it: old sea-mines, abandoned military buildings about to collapse, rail tracks, old war objects for curious visitors to admire, even a small Nargö Museum. It`s also an Estonian nature conservation area.
