RAKVERE

The city is located in the Lääne-Viru county. The city is the Estonia’s fifth largest city. It’s a small, attractive and developing city and hosts a growing number of art events. A part of its charming old town, the city is known for the medieval fortress. The 700 years old Castle now houses a weaponry exhibit, a medieval chamber of horrors and archery range. Adjacent to the fort is a 7-metre long, 4-metre high bronze of an aurach, the largest animal sculpture in the Baltics.
