Haapsalu Railway Station

This resort town was a favourite summer spot of Russian tzars. The railway station was built according to original drawings; the complex consists of four parts: passenger terminal, imperial pavilion, a sheltered passage linking those, and a unique covered platform that is 216 m long.


Good to know: the Russian Tzar himself was in favour of the idea to build this station and supported the construction. The first passenger train arrived in Haapsalu in 1904; the last one left in 1995. Take advantage of a unique opportunity to travel from Haapsalu to Riisipere (50 km) by bike – the old railway bed has been turned into Lääne County health trail.

Today, there is a bus stop in front of the railway station.

It belongs in the National Register of Cultural Monuments.
