Kreenholm area and Kreenholm Textile Factory

A double-terraced waterfall is located on the Narva River, just above the city. Kreenholm Island is located between the two terraces. The famous Kreenholm Textile Factory was built on the shore of the waterfull in the 19th century, and was the largest factory in the Russian Empire at that time. In 1913 over ten thousand people worked there! A compact complex of industrial architecture developed around the factory that included the factory, a hospital, workers' barracks, directors' houses, and Kreenholm Park. The buildings were built in the English style using red brick. The Kreenholm brand is known far beyond Estonia.

  • Visit to Kreenholm island with a guide from Narva museum

    The guided tour was very interesting and the whole Kreenholm industry complex was huge. It took more than 1 hour to walk it through. Exceptional!

  • Nice, leisurely tour

    Did the “official” walking tour of the area one Sunday morning - surprisingly many people had showed, to the point where the guides had to divide us into 3 groups. I can’t speak for the English...

  • Vaikuttava paikka

    Olimme festareilla Kreenholmin alueella ja erittäin vaikuttava ympäristö. Huikeaa ajatella, mitä kaikkea siellä onkaan joskus ollut. Suosittelen käymään jos kulmilla.
