A day in Narva for a history buff - route by historian Katri Raik

At 10:00 in the morning or later: visit the Narva Museum. This is no ordinary city museum. The castle itself is a "frame" for the exposition, a part of it. The museum is also exciting for children. The cartoon about the history of Narva will not leave anyone without a smile on their face.


By now, you definitely deserve a good lunch, whether it is in the castle restaurant Rondeel, our small cafe Bublik on Puškini Street, the bright cafe White Pumpkin on Lavretsov Street, or cafe Muna in Narva College.


At 14:00, we invite you to take a walk to Town Hall Square and the Old Town, Dark Garden, and the promenade. Walk along Rüütli Street and imagine what it would be like for a piece of Old Town to be restored.


If you still have energy, take a 45-minute tour of the Victoria bastion casemates. You will not regret it. If there are art lovers among you, our art gallery on the edge of the old town is a must.


In a summer time the riverboat Caroline leaves for Narva-Jõesuu at 17:00. The ride lasts a little over an hour. Be sure to enjoy the view of the Narva River’s delta. In a winter time you can use a free shuttle bus №31.


Once the riverboat reaches Narva-Jõesuu, you can go directly to Restaurant Franzia to share your impressions of an eventful day while enjoying its unforgettable lamprey fish dishes. You can go back to Narva by free shuttle bus, taxi, or riverboat, which departs at 19.00.


Narva is well worth a visit!
