Discovering Rannarootsi on your own

Coastal Swedes have lived on the coast and islands of Northwest Estonia for more than 1,000 years.

Start from Aibolands Museum in Haapsalu, which gives you an overview of the history, then go to Lyckholm Museum and St Catherine's Church in Pürksi. Then, head to Rooslepa and Nõva from Österby port.
Swedish village names and red houses are characteristic of the whole region.

If you have time, also visit Vormsi and Osmussaare, the first settlement area for coastal Swedes. Order a trip to Osmussaare here. Vormsi was inhabited by indigenous coastal Swedes until 1938. See the ferry schedule to Vormsi here.
However, the most convenient way to discover the island is by bike.
