Narva Museum, Narva

(4.6/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Place interesting. You can wander around the territory. Here even the hidden statue of Lenin:) You can climb to the top of the tower and see from the heights of Narva and Ivangorod.

  • Home and the only attraction of Narva-her fortress. Eight floors are full of the spirit of the middle ages and the history. In addition, as a nice bonus on her roof, you'll see a spectacular panorama and Ivangorod fortress. Museum suggest not only to fans of history, but also for each guest. For just a few euros, you will get great pleasure and inspiration. Plus you bring home a souvenir from a small Estonian town.
