The island of Aegna was called Hundisaari (Vulvesö, 1348 Wluesøø) under Swedish influence from the 13th century onwards, and even in the 1920s the place name Wulf was used in Estonian literature in parallel with Aegna. In 1683 the island was named Eikisar, in 1724 Eignesar and in 1937 Äigna.
The historian Paul Johansen has speculated that the Swedish name of the island may be related to the Viking Ulf Ragvaldsson, who died under Tallinn in 1032 and was later buried on a small island in the Gulf of Tallinn. He also suggested that the Estonians first named the island Salmesaari after the strait or worm.
The origin of the name Aegna is associated with the Estonian-Swedish dialect word eik (horse), as horses were grazed on the island in the Middle Ages. Before the First World War, a system of coastal protection batteries was built on Aegna, which was part of the sea fortress of Peter the Great.
The island of Aegna is administratively part of the Tallinn City Centre District. About 70% of the island is covered by forest. The island of Aegna is a real oasis in the Gulf of Tallinn, known for its wonderful nature, charming coastline and colourful past. Enjoy a hike where sandy beaches alternate with wildlife and World War II ruins.
Aegna has the most beautiful sandy beaches in Tallinn. Walk through one of Estonia's largest rock formations, with a total of more than 23 boulders, and set off on the island's magical forest trails, which lead you directly to the ancient stone labyrinth.
