Narva is the town in North-Eastern part of Estonia in Ida-Virumaa county. (210 km from Tallinn, 50 km from Johvi and 150 km from St. Petersburg)

Narva is the most eastern city of Estonia and it is fourth largest town in the country.
Much of population of the town speaks in Russian. It is very difficult to find & hear Estonian language there.

Narva is known as border city with Russia.

At the time of World War II Narva was destroyed. At Soviet period Narva developed as industrial city. Also today Narva is more city of industry then tourist city. Although it is worth a visit, becouse there are some interesting sites.
Narva castle is one of the TOP strongholds in Estonia.

    Hi Jevgeni
    Lovely page! My husband is particularly keen to visit Narva - now all we need to do to make this an ambition a reality is to plot a return visit to Estonia!

    Fabulous page about Narva, which has always been on my must visit list for Estonia. Unfortunately, I never made it there. Interesting to see that they still have a Lenin Statue there.

    Nice winter pictures of Narva. I missed Narva during my visit to Estonia in 2001. Maybe I will be travelling in this part of Europe one day. I am sure I will visit Narva. The castel is marvellous. Greetings.

    Hi! Narva is in my future travel list. I'll get the driver licence and will go there by car. :-)

    That is one huge church for 3000 people! The tower overshadowing the historic buildings on Peetri square looks quite confusing.
