Two languages, two cultures and a lot of history!

Narva is a city where European and Russian cultures blend. In Narva you can take a fascinating journey through the history of many centuries and cultural heritage that make the city special.

Estonia’s easternmost town boasts a well-preserved castle (Hermann Fortress) overlooking a large, winding river acting as a border between Estonia and Russia. The nearby Narva-Jõesuu resort is dotted with spas and a large sandy beach that draws in holidaymakers every summer.

Narva offers visitors a blend of history, culture, and natural beauty. It is easily reached by train from Tallinn, it's a fascinating place for a weekend getaway for those interested in history and culture. Just north of the city, you'll find a 7.5 km stretch of sandy beach and relaxing spa hotels. The first spa in Narva-Jõesuu was opened in the 19th century, and the town continues to be a popular place for holidaymakers. 

Once a prime example of Baroque architecture in Europe, Narva was heavily damaged in the Second World War and almost entirely rebuilt. These days, the city displays examples of classical Soviet-era architecture side-by-side with exciting contemporary developments, such as Narva College, an ultra-modern building paying homage to the town’s historical prosperity.
