  • Amazing to meet away from the main tourist destinations of this lovely White Castle-Manor. A quiet and romantic place about one kilometer from the road. On a rather large territory located Park, tennis court and playground for disc golf. In the Castle a few hotel rooms, an excellent restaurant and Museum-Gallery of Estonian composer Eduard Tubin, with its original Grand piano. There is a free parking. Castle carries out various activities on request. A great place for travelers!
