This historic town situated in a sheltered bay in western Estonia has a number of interesting places to explore including the Bishops Palace, the railway station - now a museum, and the promenade from where this photo was taken on a warm September evening.
What I found remarkable was that it was Saturday night and yet very few people were to be seen out on the streets. Admittedly we were there around 7pm but there was hardly a soul to be seen. Later it became clear that perhaps part of the reason is there are very few restaurants for the visitor and perhaps the locals choose to stay at home. Never mind I enjoyed our stroll on the prom, our exploration of the empty castle grounds and the brief visit to see the engines and carriages at the train museum.
Visit my separate tips for more details.
- Pros:Lovely architecture; relaxed pace
- Cons:Few restaurants
- In a nutshell:Worth at least one days visit
I'm not a railway enthusiast but I couldn't help but be impressed by the small collection of engines that are located at... more travel advice
