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.
