About
Come and see this memorial to one of Estonia’s most famous composers, who grew up in Laane County - Cyrillus Kreek (1889-1962). The memorial, which was created by Aime Kuulbusch, is located in front of the composer’s former home, on the shores of Vaikese Bay. Did you know...?*The majority of Kreek's works were created in Haapsalu.*Kreek's most important 'secret service' was composing sacred music and arranging sacred folk songs and choral canons, whilst publicly maintaining a standoffish attitude towards the church.

A great place for self-guided Cyrillus Kreek fans.

This picturesque setting is a great place to listen to some Cyrillus Kreek, learn about his life and take in the view he would have had from his house.

However, you will need to bring your own resources to make the most of it. A smartphone (with headphones) will allow you to read about his life on Wikipedia and listen to his requiem and other pieces on YouTube.

It's just a small statue, or rather just a head. I didn't see it special in any way. The surroundings are nice, though.
