Geocache Description:


Patarei ehitati Vene keiser Nikolai I korraldusel kindlusehitisena, ametliku nimega Kaitsekasarm. Kindlustuse kompleks valmis 1840. aastal, ent muutunud sõjapidamise strateegia tõttu ei kasutatud seda kordagi sihipäraselt. Kuni Vene tsaarivõimu kokkuvarisemiseni kasutati Patareid kasarmuna.

Aastatel 1920-2002 tegutses Patareis erinevate riigikorda ajal vangla. Kompleksi põhiosa on alates 13. maist 1997 Eesti Vabariigi kultuurimälestis.

Tänasel päeval haldab Patareid Riigi Kinnisvara Aktsiaselts .

Patareiga tegelevad inimesed on aardest teadlikud.



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.
