Merekindlusest vanglani

Patarei was built by the order of Russian Emperor Nicholas I as a fortress, with the official name of Defence Barracks. The fortification complex was completed in 1840, but due to the changed warfare strategy it was never used for its intended purpose.

Until the collapse of the Russian tsar power, Patarei was used as barracks.

From 1920 to 2002 there was a prison in Patarei during various regimes.

Since 13 May 1997 the main part of the complex has been a cultural monument of the Republic of Estonia.

Today Patarei is managed by Riigi Kinnisvara AS and the fortress complex houses the Prison Museum. It is possible to visit Patarei both independently and on a guided tour.
