Warm sea water, curative mud and fresh air have made Haapsalu well-known for centuries. Only a hundred kilometres away from the capital, itīs always been a loved summer resort in Estonia.
The oldest part of Haapsalu is built on a strip of land that was formed of many islets only a few hundred years back. Narrow streets with the wooden houses not changed much from the beginning of XXth century bring you to the sea again and again. Haapsalu has been called the Nordic Venice for that plentitude of water.
Above all, Haapsalu is a town for people. A bit self-contained peace and silence are not the only values to find this over 700 year old town: eventful summer season has become Haapsalu's trade mark.
