Narva Castle, Narva
(4.6/5 based on 160 reviews on the web)
Overlooking its Russian counterpart on the other side of the river, Narva Castle represents the city's top attraction and supports a local historical museum. Visit the fortification, originally constructed by the Danish in 1256 and upgraded to its sturdy stone version in the 1400s, and explore its grounds and gardens. Climb to the top of the 51 m (167 ft) high main defensive tower, standing guard imposingly over the rest of the complex. From there you'll be rewarded with a sweeping view of the surrounding town and a good vantage point to see across the river into Russia. At the museum you'll learn more about the history of the castle and the city of Narva itself. There are often temporary art and other exhibits held there.

  • The town is small, it is better to stay. For a couple of days should it far and wide. Most of all I was impressed by Narva Castle and the Town Hall Square in the Castle provided a constant interesting exposition Narva Museum tells about the history of the city. To take the tour. Summer happens hold festivals at the Castle, you can have fun with the children.
