TOUR SAAREMAA'S TINY CAPITAL CITY
Saaremaa`s tiny capital Kuressaare has more than 600 years of history. Due to it's isolation and rural setting the town has not suffered industrial pollution and urban sprawl. Much of it's Gothic and classicist architecture has been well preserved. Some of it's must beautiful buildings are the Town Hall and Weigh House. The open-air market place is filled with foodstuff and native handicrafts, including a marvelous selection of Estonian famous hand-made woollen sweaters and mittens. Further down along Lossi Street, there is the Orthodox St. Nicholas Church, built in 1790. In the middle of the 19th century Kuressaare became a health resort. The most charming reminders from those times are Pargi Street and Kurhouse, located in the park in front of the Episcopal Castle. Without doubt, a tour of the capital must include the Episcopal Castle, the best-preserved medieval fortress in the Baltics, which for many centuries combined the role of Episcopal residence, prison and sanctuary. The basic quadrangular structure took 40 years to build between 1340 and 1380 and the massive walls were added in the 15th century.
