Oru Park and the grand palace in the beautiful valley of the River Pühajõgi was built by Grigori Jelissejev, one of the wealthiest men in 19th century Russia. In 1935, three Estonian industrialists bought the palace and park and then gifted it to President Päts to be used as his summer residence. The palace was later destroyed during the Second World War.

Today, you can walk in the well-marked and well-maintained park, look at various species of trees and shrubs, explore Hõbeallika (Silver Spring) Cave, as well as enjoy the sea view and the sunset from the Swallow's Nest.
You can come and experience the exciting opportunity to travel in the historic Toila-Oru Park with virtual tour "VR Toila 1938"

Very nice park to visit

Go and see this park. So calm and silent. lot to see. Nice areas of plants and statues. Very well maintained area.



Beautiful views and great history

We walked from 2 bear gates via linden avenue. Nice walk, not very long, to the old manor place. I really recomend virtual reality tour, takes things to another level.

Very nice walk through the Gates of 2 Bears, along oak alley and then all the sudden - perfect garden with breathtaking view. Well spent time.
