Tour to the Toila-Oru park of the Päts era

The tour takes the participants to the glory time of the Republic of Estonia at the end of the 1930s, when a beautiful castle – similar to an Italian palazzo – was the summer home of the President of the Republic of Estonia in Oru park in Toila. Locals remember these years as a fairytale-ish mini-space.

The tour is a story about the years 1935–1940, when children played in the park and castle, where festive receptions and meetings on the dance floor took place. Three surprises are waiting for the participants: the meeting, a meal, and a trip to the past.

The tour is a gift to the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia: it gives us time to think about where we come from and where we are now.
