A day trip in Narva from Narva-Jõesuu - route by historian Katri Raik

You are welcome to visit Narva directly from Narva-Jõesuu. You have several options for traveling to Narva and back: you may take the free local bus line or your own car, but our recommendation in a summer time is to go by the riverboat Caroline. It departs from Narva-Jõesuu harbor at 12:00.


At 13:30, you will arrive at Narva river port, right where the river promenade starts. If you want to have lunch right away, we recommend the riverside Bar Ro-Ro Art Club.


You have other options too:

1. Take a walk on our promenade; you will also meet the locals there. Find one special lion; enjoy the view of the two fortresses, Narva and Ivangorod, which are only a musket shot away from each other. Enjoy the beauty of Joaorg and go up to the "five-krone view" observation deck.

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


2. Start at the promenade, find the lion, enjoy the fortresses, but turn to Raja Street and go to the museum in the castle. This is an exciting opportunity to learn about its history. You can also have lunch in the castle restaurant Rondeel.


On your way back to the boat, be sure to walk across Town Hall Square and along Rüütli Street and go down to the river promenade along the winding Pimeaia Street. If other ideas have come up in the meantime, you can also return to Narva-Jõesuu by a shuttle bus №31.


The riverboat Caroline departs for Narva-Jõesuu at 19:00. The ride lasts a little over an hour. Enjoy the amazing view of the Narva River’s delta.


Having arrived to Narva-Jõesuu, you can go directly to restaurant Franzia to share your impressions of an eventful day while enjoying its unforgettable lamprey fish dishes.


Narva is well worth a visit!
