Take a walk by the river near the castle. Beautiful place, clean space and clean air. Very few cars and traffic despite the border.

The Narva castle ‘faces off’ against its Russian counterpart, with only the river to separate them. Eight floors of exhibits but the high point - literally - is the top floor viewing gallery. Stunning views in all sides. When I got to the top my...More

You can visit here and look across the river at Russia. Look around the castle. There is a nice small gift shop as well.

Lots of steps - 8 floors, and lot's of small rooms. Not suitable to visit with infants, but interesting for bit older kids. In medieval yard there are different activities

I highly recommend arranging a private tour guide, we paid for an English speaking guide that was very informative, well worth the small additional charge.
