Inspirock Rating:
3.6/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web
Inside a neo-Gothic palace, enclosed in iron gates with two eagle sculptures at the entrance, Estonian History Museum presents paintings, busts, and captions chronicling the origins, occupation, and liberation of Estonia. What started as a private collection of one ornamental Easter egg and a Chinese pipe became one of the most significant museums in the country. During the occupation, a large portion of the collection was destroyed. Today, you can visit comprehensive exhibits that explain Soviet and German rule through videos, presentations, and displays, as well as check out temporary art displays. To make the tour easier, reserve a guide in advance or use a free audio app for smartphones.

  • On the night of the museums and is primarily visited the castle of count Orlov-Davydov, who was renamed Castle Maarjamäe. Count Anatoly Vladimirovich called this territory, Hill and Park in honor of his wife and daughter, both named Maria. Earlier it was the Sugar Hill and worked here sugar factory. Unfortunately a large area of the castle is under renovation. You can see that the work goes very big during weekdays many construction equipment. Trees in the territory in the construction zone carefully tied. boards. You can still walk from both inside and outside the territory. In the most distant parts of a small two-storey building was opened. Subject: German kokupaciâ the times of World War II. As always the most favorite themes are occupation and deportation, the range crosses. Scantily.

  • Very cute little place, you can wander absolutely free and find a lot of interesting things ... The castle is located in the District of pirita, get to it very easily go on the chassis, and then collapse and climb the Hill. Address: Pirita tee 56. Walking is also not far away. If you go from the Kadriorg Park-the only takes 20 minutes) until the construction of the highway (1926-year) down the stairs directly to the water-splashing waves already there, where a bus stop. Now from there just beautiful views)

  • Very interesting exhibition. This era of Estonian history is not well known, I assume. At least I did not have a full picture on what really happened and by whom. It is not only the German occupation,...  read more »
  • You don't need to go into the museum to see the fascinating collection of old Soviet statues that have been dumped at the back of the building. It's worth going out to see them alone!

  • Strikes an attitude towards its history. In the backyard of the dump sites.
