NARVA HERMANN CASTLE

During more than its 700 years existence Narva Hermann Castle belonged to Danes, Germans, Swedes, Russians and finally Estonians. The castle’s appearance as we know it today originates from the 14th-16th c. from the period of domination by Livonian Order. Gravely damaged in the World War II the castle was mostly restored in 1970s-1980s, the restoration works are not finished.
Today Narva castle hosts a museum where one can see both permanent exhibition on Narva city history as well as about a dozen of temporary expositions. Each autumn Museum festival is organised in Narva. During the festival the best of the Estonian museums’ temporary exhibitions are on display here until the end of year.
