Rakvere’s oak grove is a unique area of greenery in a northern European urban landscape - it is one of very few oak forests left in northern Estonia. It is thought to have been a sacred place for the ancient inhabitants of the area. The oaks that grow here today, however, date from the last century, and some were only planted a couple of decades ago. The oak grove is popular among the townsfolk as an area for sport and recreation, and a natural classroom for local school students.
Did you know...? - The grove is home to a memorial known as the 'Okaskroon' and to a German military cemetery - A hiking trail passes through the oak grove
