Reputedly it dates back to 18th century because on the inner wall of the chapel there is a year 1801 that is associated with big repair. In the graveyard there are the graves of many famous people - the ancestors of the poets M. Under and D. Vaarandi; the actor Olev Eskola; familiar from V.Panso book "The Funny Person" Lepa Anna. Familiar from art, literature and folk tales the name of Villem Tamm, whom J. Koler used as a model for Christ when painting his work "Come to me" in Kaarli church. « less

The Gothic church in Kaina seated 600 persons and was the biggest church on Hiiumaa. The church was destroyed in 1941. Several tombstones as well as the sun cross above the entrance are protected as art monuments. A fire in the church destroyed many art treasures: the altar of the Virgin Mary, Saint Nicholas and Saint Antonio, the organ built by the father of the Estonian composer Rudolf Tobias etc. The church also served as the parish centre for many centuries. The ruins have now been conserved, the restoration of the church is planned. The trees that surround the church form a nice park, as the locals call it. « less

The historicist-style stone church was established on the island in the course of the conversion movement. The stones were brought from Riga. Icons and liturgical textiles from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries are on display. The former priest's house is located next to the stone church. The church is the only orthodox church to have survived in Hiiumaa, where services also take place. « less

The museum continues to operate in the same building, which was initially the administrators’ house at the Kassari Manor and later a schoolhouse.There are items dating from the Tsarist, Estonian, and Soviet periods related to maritime history, as well as the history of agriculture and the manors. There is also much to see outside – a lifeboat from the Estonia, the Kassari school flagpole, manor’s lawn roller. A ship’s anchor pulled from the Orjaku harbour is also interesting. You can rest your feet in the square in front of the museum under a large oak tree – here you are in the heart of the old Kassari Manor. « less

The composer and organist Rudolf Tobias, the founder of Estonian serious music, was born in this house on May 29, 1873 as the second child into the large family of parish clerk and organist Johannes Tobias. His first music studies and attempts at composing took place between these walls. The family left Hiiumaa in 1885, when Rudolf was 12 years old. The exposition in the composer’s birthplace provides a detailed overview of Tobias’s live and work. Rudolf Tobias’s music plays in the background as the visitors move about the house. « less

The building was built in the middle of the 19th century as a hay barn for the manor. Currently, a family company named Hiiu Vill (Hiiu Wool) operates here. The oldest machines (“wool wolf”, carding machines, a roving machine) have been brought from Poland. Similar ones were operating here in the 1860s. It is assumed that the current ones date back to the 19th century, although the exact dates are unknown.The family members will gladly show you the machinery, although they are meant for doing actual work.In the summer, have a cool drink in the café and enjoy some lovely moments. « less
