    Haapsalu Things to Do

    The tourist information about Haapsalu makes quite a point about the fact that Piotr Tchaikovsky spent some time during the summer months of 1867 in Haapsalu and indeed was inspired by a folk song heard in the town from which he developed the melody for his sixth symphony.Apparently the composer would sit on the promenade and watch the sun go down...

    Haapsalu Things to Do

    I'm not a railway enthusiast but I couldn't help but be impressed by the small collection of engines that are located at the sidings at the old station.

    Medieval castle ruins

    by js77 Written Feb 27, 2007

    The castle belonged to vassals of feudal state Bishopric of Ösel-Wiek - Western part of nowadays Estonia as well as part of Saaremaa and part of Hiiumaa. It was built in 15th century, but didn't last for a long. It was destroyed already in 16th century. Now the ruined walls are few metres high, but it really looks that there is almost nothing. That's because grass and bush is growing on the ruins. It is located near the sea on the left side of the road (if coming from port) some 200 m behind the petrol station. You can see on this page how the castle once looked:
