Narva Museum, Narva

(180+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
Overlooking its Russian counterpart on the other side of the river, Narva Museum 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.

  • A full ticket for 7 euros, and show particularly nothing, unless of course you're not a fan of history. The castle is much more interesting exposition. Will have to go up the stairs, but it is possible to reach the viewing platform, from where great views. The courtyard with the atmosphere of old times and people in appropriate costumes.

  • I guess only the Castle, from which you can see ... "Competition". ;) Exciting exhibitions, well laid out. And Polish accents to find. An interesting fact is that the Lady of life to hear how I talk with her daughter after the Polish attempted to sell me "Krakow lace", or napkins.
