Who would have thought that this beautiful castle was a gift to a secretary of the Swedish king Gustav II Adolf in the 1601. During the early 1600 Estonia was actually a part of the Swedish Empire ! Visiting the castle mid October is actually a bit too late as there's hardly anyone there and the restaurant was very empty... More

Too overcrowded, in good shape and well restored, have a nice walk in the park. The park is a nice place to arrange picknick.

Very beautiful renovated castle close to the Lake Peipsi with beautiful garden. Inside is a museum of Estonian composer Eduard Tubin. Had a very short walk inside & outside. It was nice experience.

A charming castle in rural Estonia close both to Tartu and Lake Peipsi, Alatskivi is easily reached by a bus from Tartu. The castle museum is compact and quickly surveyed, but you can spend quite a while in the surrounding park if you so choose.
