Medieval tour of the northern coast

View on map

Are you going to Narva from Tallinn? Make your trip more fun and educational and stop by the medieval castles of Estonia!

During this tour, you will visit two of the best preserved large medieval castles, where there are plenty of exciting things to do and discover, whatever your age. The road from Rakvere to Narva also offers beautiful views of the sea. 

Besides seeing the big castles, you should also stop by the small Purtse medieval castle and  you will also pass the smallest fortified building in Estonia, the Kiiu Vassal Stronghold.
