The Pühtitsa Dormition Convent (Kuremäe Convent) - Ida-Virumaa

 

 

The Pühtitsa Dormition Convent (Kuremäe Convent)

The Kuremäe Convent, located in the centre of Kuremäe, was established in 1891 and is the only functioning Russian Orthodox nunnery in Estonia. In ancient times, a sacred place of the Estonians was located here and a sacrificial spring was at the foot of the hill. The spring is known as a “holy spring” today for the curative powers of its water. One can also bathe in the refreshing water. The convent gates are open and you can walk around and observe convent life. Those who are more interested in the life and history of the convent can order a tour from the nuns, in order to see the various churches in the convent complex that are otherwise closed to the public.
