Hea teada!

Kauged ja eksootilised sihtkohad ongi seepärast eksootilised, et kohalikel on
maailma asjadest hoopiski erinev arusaam kui meil. Erinev ajalooline ja
kultuuritaust on loonud erinevad elulaadid, mis muudavadki meie elu huvitavaks ja vaheldusrikkaks.

Naissaar island

We will organize you a RIB safari transport to the island, then guided tour (in Estonian, Finnish, English, Italian) on military trucks on the island. You will see the entire island during 3 hour excursion. Afterwards we can have lunch or dinner and head back to Tallinn. If you want to stay overnight, the local guesthouse can accommodate up to 120 people.

The island’s name means “island of women”. It is possible, therefore, that Naissaar is the island the chronicle of Adam of Bremen mentioned around 1075 under the name “Terra ferniarum”.

Naissaar (German: Nargen; Swedish: Nargö) is an island northwest of Tallinn (but belonging to Viimsi Parish) in Estonia. The island covers an area of 18.6 km². It is 13-14 km long and 6 km wide, and lies about 8.5 km from the mainland. The highest point on the island is Kunilamägi, which is 27 meters above sea-level. The island consists predominantly of coniferous forest and piles of stones and boulders. As of 2005, the island had a population of ten. Now the island has three dozen or so permanent residents and some summer residents.

Kunilamägi

Until the Second World War, the island’s population numbered about 450 people of Estonian-Swedish origin who fled during the war. Naissaar under Soviet rule was a military area and off-limits to the public.

Although the fortifications date back to Peter the Great’s scheme to fortify Tallinn, the main fortifications on the island are from the period of Russian rule before World War II. Today, the previous small houses of the Swedish villages are being restored bit-by-bit. Also being restored is a narrow gauge railway that runs from the north to the southern tip of the island.

A notable native of the island was Bernhard Schmidt, the Swedish-Estonian optician who invented the Schmidt telescope in 1930.

The island received a lighthouse in 1788, though the present lighthouse dates to 1960. It is 47 meters tall.

Estonian Swedish fishermen were well-established on the island by the 15th Century, and the Swedes erected a small fortress there 1n 1705 during the Great Northern War. After the war Estonia became part of the Russian Empire. The Tsar had a new fortress, with five bastions, built in 1720, for the defense of Tallinn and St. Petersburg.

An epic single-ship action took place off the north end of the island on 23 June 1808 when the 14-gun Russian cutter Opyt put up an heroic though ultimately unsuccessful fight against the British 44-gun frigate HMS Salsette.

In 1850 the island’s population was 155 people, and by 1858 it had grown to 188, mostly Estonian Swedes. Between 1853 and 1856 the inhabitants built a new chapel that was part of the Swedish parish of St. Michael in Tallinn.

In the early twentieth century, Russia began the process of a modernization of its fortifications in the Gulf of Finland. However, the outbreak of the First World War stopped the planned improvements for Naissaar. Still, in 1914 a narrow-gauge railway line, with a total trackage of 37.7km, was opened.

World War I

The Russians built a new fort during the First World War. Estonia acquired some autonomy in April 1917 by a decree of the tsarist government, though Estonia remained under the suzerainty of the Russian Empire. However, after the October Revolutions the Bolshevik rebels suspended Estonia’s provisional government, the Maapäev.

In December 1917, a group of Russian sailors commandeered Naissaar and proclaimed an independent “socialist republic”, known as the Soviet Republic of Soldiers and Fortress-Builders of Nargen, under the leadership of Stepan Petrichenko. The Russian sailors, numbering about 80-90 men, formed a government and levied taxes on the local population.

At this point the new Estonian government appealed to the German army for assistance. The “republic” ceased to exist two days later, on February 26, 1918, when German forces occupied the island, causing the Russians to flee. The sailors fled to Kronstadt, where Petrichenko came to play an important role in the Kronstadt uprising.

After the departure of the German troops the Estonian Provisional Government executed forty Bolshevik prisoners of war here in February 1919.The island then became part of the new republic of Estonia in 1920.

Between the wars

The Estonian Republic also used Naissaar as a fortified naval base. In 1934, 450 people lived on the island, 291 of them were Estonians, mostly serving in the Estonian army. The Estonian army continued to use the railway was opened in 1914, used for military purposes for all the thirties by the army of the First Republic of Estonia.

World War II

The Red Army occupied Naissar in 1940, only to have the Wehrmacht displace it a few months later. The population of Swedish fishermen preferred the Germans, and when the Red Army drove the Germans out in 1944, the last of the Swedish-speaking fishermen took refuge in Sweden.

Post-war

Naval mines dating from the Soviet occupation

During the period of the Estonian Soviet Socialist Republic, the Soviet Union established the largest factory for naval mines in the Baltic on the island. The Soviets therefore declared the island a military area and off-limits to the public. The Soviets also used the railway to connect the factory to the port.

Post-Soviet period

West coast of Naissaar

When the Soviets left Naissaar in early 1993, they burned the explosives in the naval mines, leaving a multitude of metal casings scattered throughout the island. Many of these were scavenged as scrap iron, but a field of mines is still visible near the wharf at Mädasadam. Another legacy of the arms industry is that the soil of the island still is contaminated with oil and heavy metals.

In 1995 Naissaar was converted into a nature reserve.

Prangli island

Prangli is situated 9km north-east from Viimsi peninsula and is 6,44 km². Its extensive shores are low and stony on the west side and sandy on the east side. The highest point on the island is Kullamägi (“Golden hill” where in the old days pirates had dug up their gold) which is 10m above sea level. Prangli is 6km long and 2,5km wide. The pine forest and small bushes are the main vegetation on the island.

We can organize you excursions and transportation on the island. The island is small enough to have a pleasant walk, but it is possible to rent bicycles and receive accommodation, sauna and smoked fish. The island has no ATM, so take with cash you. During the summer time there are more people because some have their summer houses on the island. We have shop where you can have food, a place to eat called “Black hatch” (“Must luuk” in estonian) first aid medical service, post office, small hall for cultural events and elementary school.

The forest brings a good protection from the blowing winds. There are a lot of glacial boulders on the island too (The red stone, Eagle stone etc.). Prangli form together with Aksi and Keri a chain in the Gulf of Finland. Like many of the island in the Baltic sea and Gulf of Finland Prangli island was once inhabited by Estonian-Swedes (estonians call them “shore swedes”) 100 inhabitants live nowdays in 3 villages on the island permanently.

HISTORY:
Prangli island emerged from the sea around 3500 years ago.The island is mentioned for the first time in 1387 (Rango) it is considered that the island was populated by swedes at the end of 13. and the beginning of 14. centuries, later with finns and estonians who were fishermen and seal hunters. Prangli island estonified, in 17. century it was part of Kallavere manor from 1397-1549 it was part of Maardu manor and from then up to 1847 to Haljava manor. Merchants Girard de Soucantons managed Prangli and Aksi as half-manors from 1847- 1899.

The population of the island has declined nearly five times during the last century. According Gustav Vilbaste 700-800 people lived here in the beginning of the last century, in 1934 there were 469 people living on the island, 1994 there were only 146 inhabitants. Nowdays there are less than 100 people living all-year-round on the island of Prangli.

The ecology of the island has changed substantially because of the decline in population figures as well as farming animals.There were few trees in the beginning of the last century, nowadays there is a thick forest and juniper bushes covering most of the islands old meadows.

The northern part is under state environmental protection, on the east bank there is a memorial to those who died on the vessel “Eesti Rand”  which was sank nearby Prangli in 1941

LABYRINTHS:

Estonia has at least five, and maybe as many as nine, historic stone labyrinths documented. They are all situated on islands along the coast, in those parts of Estonia that were colonized by Swedish speaking farmers and fishers during the mediaeval. This pattern of distribution can be compared with Finland where most stone labyrinths are also found along the coast in areas where Swedish speaking farmers and fishers settled in the early mediaeval. The most reasonable interpretation of this pattern is that the idea of building and using stone labyrinths was part of the cultural heritage brought in from the west by Swedish settlers.

Karl von Löwis of Menar mentioned an Estonian labyrinth situated at Tahkuna, on the northern tip of Dagö, in 1912. In 1925 A.M.Tallgren mentioned two labyrinths: the one at Tahkuna and another on the little island of Viirlaid. Peter Mey wrote an article in the Estonian newspaper Päevaleht in 1931, where he mentions that there was a partly preserved labyrinth on the island of Aegna near the Estonian capital, Tallinn.

Mey also mentions that there were labyrinths on the islands of Aski and Prangli in the same area.

island of Keri

Keri Island is one of Estonia’s northernmost islands (~ 30 km from Tallinn). It is located in the Gulf of Finland, near Prangli island not more than 6 miles north. Keri island has an area of just 3.1 hectares. Keri is low and covered with cobble stones, gravel and sand. Plenty of rocks in the sea are surrounding the island. Keri was mentioned documentary for the first time 1623. 1719 became on instruction of Zar Peter I (Peter the Great). a lighthouse establishes (considered the oldest house in two). The today’s lighthouse was taken 1803 in enterprise and strengthened 1857 with a metallic essay. Since the way course of the last lighthouse attendant 2003 the island is uninhabited.

Between 1906-1912 a local beacon worked on natural gas, as well as all the island’s houses.
For the first time in the world for the gas used to light the lighthouse. Began to work the first natural gas-fueled stove in Estonia.
