Get around[edit]


Swedes inhabited the coast for hundreds of years so the area is full of Swedish history.

Acquaint yourself with farm tools and buildings from the last century, with exhibits of wood and stone - all 10 buildings that comprised the farm complex have survived. In addition, you can arrange hikes to visit the region’s nature and other attractions, using various orientation and hiking trails.  edit
  • St Olaf's Church. The oldest and also smallest surviving wooden church in Estonia (built in the 17th century).  edit
