Paljassaare is a nature reserve and virtually an unofficial WWI museum, situated in just 3 km from the city centre! It's amazing, that such a deserted and desolate place can be so close to the city! :) Many bunkers from the Peter The Great Maritime Fortress are still there, including 4 concrete ship cannon bunkers, although not very well preserved. Being home for many bird species, it's a nice place for bird watching (with towers built specifically for this purpose).
