  • located between sea and lakes with a pleasant old town, nice rooms, lovely wooden houses, a mighty castle, a decadent, but impressive palace in a State of disrepair (nearby), a nice long Lake, a scenic railway station. Nice places to comfortably turn for sleeping with the camper. not to be missed

  • Very nice place with lots of low-rise houses, many of them are wood and reminiscent of pre-revolutionary Russia, space holiday immediately want to reread the Russian classics. Set (for a relatively small town) restaurants offer diverse and inexpensive meals in very pleasant interiors. Several souvenir shops with a wide range, especially all kinds of wood products. There is a Museum of local lore, a bowling alley and a couple of supermarkets.

  • A relatively short distance from Tallinn. There is a pleasant stroll along the Lake, a couple of restaurants and SPA hotels. Leave it can be hard because it is one of the stops on the way from Sareema to Tallinn and buses can be crammed. Friday and Sunday.
