The Narva Castle is one of the main attractions of the city. In the seventh decade of the 13th century, the Danes established a castle as a residence for the Danish King’s vice-Regent. The Narva Castle is the most diverse and best preserved defence structure in Estonia. The area of the castle is 3.2 hectares, and the highest point is the Tall Hermann Tower (51 metres). Today you can visit the museum in the castle, were the displays explain the history of Narva and the castle. There are handicraft workshops in the northern courtyard, where you can try your hand at various techniques and handicrafts.

I visited the castle with my partner on a day trip from Tallinn where we based our holiday. It was a short walk from hotel Narva where we stayed for the night and I'd say 15 mins from the train station. We'd read a little...More

Reading about the Swedish king Karl XII who came to Narva in year 1700 I was curious to see the place with my own eyes. Knowing about the big battles for me the background info gave me a historical travel by mind.

From the tower, there is excellent views of the border with Russia. Some of the exhibitions were quite random though.
