The castle’s appearance as we know it today originates from the 14th-16th c. from the period of domination by Livonian Order.Today Narva castle hosts a museum where one can see both permanent exhibition on Narva city history as well as about a dozen of temporary expositions.A beautiful view of Narva city and Ivangorod fortress on the Russian side can be admired from 51 metre high Tall Hermann tower.Each summer the artisan history centre Northern Yard comes to life in the castle’s northern yard.

I liked this place, maybe because I have this interest of historical things. Also interesting to see the architecture and the wiews to other side of river Narva.
If you're in Narva, take some time and visit this historical monument.

Very nice place with two castles, onde in Russian and the other in Estonian. The view is wonderful. I recomend a stop when traveling between the 2 countries.

You can't fail to miss the fortress - easily the most impressive building for miles around. It's quite an experience to go up to the top viewing gallery and literally look down onto the castle on the other side of the river - in Russia. Although (for now) thankfully peaceful you can really imagine how important this place was during its time as a defensive position.

After visiting, I felt the outside was as impressive as the inside. Very interesting articles from long ago. At only 6 euros the admission fee can't be beat! The staff were all very inviting which made me feel more welcome. A must see while in Narva.

Walk in with pet in park and in territory of castle is strongly prohibited. I was there with toy dog, Security staff is active and commanded me to leave immediately
