An eye-catching former fire station stands by the Kuressaare town hall. It was built in 1911, except for the stone tower that was built for drying the hosepipes in 1958. Once the new modern depot was built next to the bus station, the old one was left to tenants. Today, the building is a private property and is a home to the Pritsumaja Grill & Bar Restaurant.
Good to know: One of the very first voluntary fire societies in Estonia was established in Kuressaare (1867).
The building forms part of Kuressaare's small square but, in our opinion, it's not a destination in its own right; that is, unless, you want a restaurant and decide to dine there (which we didn't).
If in Saaremaa and Kuressaare, there is a rather hard to choose where to eat - too many. We did choose blindly and did end up here. Food looks cheap, but tastes fine. Serving was fast and well...
This restaurant is right in the heart of Kuressaare. We stopped by for a beer on a hot day. The terrace is a perfect spot to view people passing by.
