About
Risti railway station was the place where most people from Laanemaa – almost 3000 people – were deported to Siberia. The monument designed by Viljar Ansko “The railway rails remember…” has been placed on a small abandoned platform with stone stairs on both sides. Four rails reach for the sky in the four corners of the platform. The rails are joined into a cross with two horizontal bars just before the top. At night the monument is illuminated diagonally by two spotlights installed inside the railway platform. The height of the monument is almost 13 metres. Besides commemorating the mass deportations in the recent history, the cross also symbolises the history of the small railway town – Risti.

This place makes you think and sad. A place worth a visit and your time. Closw by a beautiful train station and a water tower.
