Monument For the Inhabitants of Saaremaa Who Have Lost Their Lives in the War of Independence

About
The monument was erected to commemorate those who lost their lives in the War of Independence (1918-1920). The author of the monument is Amandus Adamson, a well-known sculptor in Estonia whose best known work is the Russalka (mermaid) monument in Tallinn. The construction of the monument began in Italy in 1927. The monument was opened in 1928. Later 2 bronze plates were added to the monument containing the names of the inhabitants of Saaremaa who were wounded or have died in the war.Good to know:This figure is not the original. The original was tossed into the sea by Soviet troops and was never found. A local sculptor from Saaremaa recreated it.

Memorial to those who fought for the First Period of Latvian Independence 1918-1920. It is located right in the middle of town and is perfect to stroll by in the evening after a good dinner.

Honoring those who first established Estonian independence, one is reminded of the traumas and sacrifices Estonians have endured.

Name of the Monument tells what it's about. Important for locals and it was nice to see it after Estonia's National Day, with all those flowers etc. Distances are so short in Kuressaare, that you will probably walk/drive right next to it. Worth of photo for tourists too.

The monument is found in the heart of Kuressaare (just along from St Nicholas' Church) and depending on your perspective this is either a good or not so good location. On the plus side it is easy to find and will consequently remain prominent in people's memories. For us, however, as the monument is surrounded by roads, there was too much traffic noise which was a shame, as there were some benches where it would have been possible to have a few minutes of reflection.

It is small, but hearty monument, located in the very heart of the town near the very interesting small house with clock tower. And the clock is working :)
