Rakvere oak grove

Rakvere oak grove is a unique area of greenery in a northern European urban landscape – it is one of very few oak forests left in northern Estonia.

It is thought to have been a sacred place for the ancient inhabitants of the area. The oaks that grow here today, however, date from the past couple of centuries, and some were only planted a couple of decades ago. Today, the oak grove is popular among the townsfolk as an area for sport and recreation, and a natural classroom for local school students.

Good to know: the grove is home to a memorial known as the 'Okaskroon' and to a German military cemetery. A hiking trail also passes through the oak grove.
