Pakamägi hill is a flat, forested limestone upland.
According to the chronicles of Henry the Latvian, it was a meeting place of the tribal leaders of ancient Estonia. Did you know…? *It is said that the fire which was started as a sign of the St. George’s Night uprising was lit in the village of Raikküla on Pakamägi hill *The western slope of Pakamägi has a terrace which is 9 metres high where you will find truly ancient rocks *Midsummer bonfires would be lit here in days of old; now the Pakamägi amphitheatre hosts summer concerts and performances *This is a perfect place for picnics
