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?
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.
Huge stone monuments near the Pakri Island North bank is must see, but it´s off the paths. See transportation tips how to reach Pakri Islands... if You are on island just walk on marked hiking path to north and You can see all this.
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.
