Old Jüri`s Soap Chamber

Old Jüri`s Soap Chamber is one special place. Silver Hüdsi, the first and only male soapmaker of Setomaa, works here. He named the soap chamber after his grandfather Jüri. Each soap has something from Setomaa’s nature. The most special ingredient is the holy water from the nearby Pechory Monastery, which is not found in any other soap in the world. The most popular soaps are made from tar, bog, and Piusa sand soap. Everyone will find their favourite!
The host has an interesting story to tell to the guests.
