Kuressaare Episcopal Castle

Kuressaare Episcopal Castle, also known as Kuressaare Castle, was built in the 14th century. Today, the Castle houses Saaremaa Museum with its permanent exhibition and sundry temporary exhibitions.
The convent building of the Kuressaare Episcopal Castle is the only surviving medieval fortification in the Baltic countries that has not been significantly reconstructed. In addition to aesthetic pleasure that the elegant, decorous and magnificent architecture offers, a visit to the castle allows to explore the local history through an immediate experience and to feel the breath of the Middle Ages.
