    The cisternian Padise Monastery

    by LysDor Updated Jun 11, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is one the oldest architectural monuments in Estonia. The monastery is dating back to the 13th century and was established by Latvian cisternian monks.

    The monastery had great power - the monks even had a fishing right close to today´s Helsinki area in Finland.

    The monastery has been destroyed many times during the history but even ruined it is worth to visit.

    I wonder if they brewed also trappist beer here?

    Sea kayaking

    by kylamees Written Jul 8, 2003

    It´s new in Estonia, but raising popularity sea kayaking. There are shost distances and interesting coastline near pakri peninsula and islands. Kayaking is perfect way to see coast banks very close from seaside.

    Go to bicycle trip or just hiking to Pakri peninsula where Paldiski is. There are interesting routes on coastline. You can see beautiful nature (imagine - coast may be like somewhere in pacific islands: great trees (oaks) curving over the water!) and ruins of some military objects (was top secret area and closed in soviet army time). There are some swimming beaches here, too. Avoid strong wind because it's one of the deepest seas near coast in Estonia and may have strong waves.
