Interesting and nicely located

We loved the statue, it is especially nice late afternoon with the beautiful light, and in the evening.



Impressive sculpture

Tavras sculpture is one of the main attractions in Rakvere, a real symbol of the town. It is relatively young, was installed less than 20 years ago, but looks like everybody knows about this...




The huge bull located next to Rakvere Castle. We visited on our trip to the Castle. There is a little walk to get to it. But we enjoyed our time.
