Explore Narva by train! It sounds somewhat exotic. Located at the crossroads of the East and the West, the city is unique both culturally and architecturally. Let's start with Narva Castle, where the Narva Museum is located. This castle was built at the end of the 13th century as the residence of the King of Denmark's Deputy Governor. Today, it is the most versatile and best preserved fortification in Estonia. The river side wing of the castle has been opened to visitors; until recently, only museum staff had access. It offers a view of Russia, Estonia and the river between.
Next to the castle is a 1-km-long promenade that has been renovated, along which you can walk and enjoy the view of the richest river in Estonia. From there, you can head to the mightiest bastion in Narva – Victoria Bastion, where you can take a guided tour and listen to exciting stories about its completion and use.
There is also Narva Alexander Church with a viewing platform next to the promenade, in the hall of which the installation 'Heaven above Narva' is shown. It is displayed directly on the vaults of the church and can be watched from specially angled chairs, looking up for a quarter of an hour as the colourful history of Narva is revived.
From there, we recommend going to see the Kreenholm Manufacturing Company with its unique architecture. It is now used as a venue for organising events. If you wish to see the sunset, visit the port of the reservoir near the Narva power plant to enjoy it. This place is also called the 'Venice of Narva'. It is the place where the video for Nublu's song 'Für Oksana' was filmed.
