The “Teekond” (Journey) memorial for victims of communism that lies on more than 30,000 square meters and is estimated to cost €8 million should be completed in Tallinn’s Maarjamäe subdistrict by next fall.

The communism victims’ memorial and officers’ monument form a common garden of remembrance for victims of communism. The site remembers more than 28,000 people who lost their lives to the actions of the Communist regime, many of whom died a log way from home and were buried in unknown locations.

The memorial grounds will be made up of two parts – “Teekond” and “Koduaed” (Home Garden). One needs to complete a journey to reach the garden. To embark on a journey, one must leave the garden.
