    Otepaa Church

    Otepaa church

    From much of Oteppaa you can see the beautifully lit church across a small valley. The light was too weak for a picture, so I went closer. Having been to Russia, I think it's remarkably how well preserved the Estonian cities and villages are. Many places in Russia there would be a big fat tractor factory placed right next to anything old and cultural all in the name of proogress. The Estonians managed to dodge that in the Sovjet area.

    The sun set can give some amazing scenery, where you think there must be a fire in the distance. The sky explodes in all colours from pink to dark blue, and remember this starts at 3pm in the winter. Sun is gone around 4.15pm.

    Otepaa golf course will be an 18-hole course when it's completely finnished. It opened in 2005, and in 2006 there should be 9 holes opened. The surroundings looked beautifull and it's located very near the Puhajarve Puhkekeskus Spa Hotel

    Let's go swim in the ice cubes

    Puhajarve (Holy Lake) is located right outside Otepaa, and it was once blessed by the Dalai Lama. It's a nice place to go swimming and it has a nice sandby beach, or so I was told. I was there in the wintertime, so I didn't really fancy a swim...

    "Alpine" skiing

    There were snow cannons both places

    Otepaa has two small ski centres where you can try some down hill skiing. I believe the emphasis is on hill in this case, because the highest point in Estonia is about 350m. To the south west of Otepaa you find the biggest centre shown in this picture. I didn't try, but I understood there were two slopes.

    As far as I could tell, the price for one day was 240 eek.

    The energy pillar

    The energy pillar

    It is believed that when you touch the rock, it will give you a great shot of energy, and many people who have tried it say it actually works. Well, even if it doesn't it's still an interesting thing to look at.
