Rouge Things to Do
The Valley of the Nightingales...
Ööbikuorg is a wonderful valley near Rouge. There are hiking trails leading through the valley, but unfortunately I haven't tried them so far... Next time! Apart from these trails, there's a road leading through the valley which provides scenic views, too.
What do you see? Pure nature at its best. Trees. Lakes. Solitude. If you're lucky, you may even hear the nightingales after which the valley was named.
Btw, is there a nicer sounding word than "ööbiku" for "nightingale"? I don't think so!Related to:

Maarja Kirik (St. Mary's Church)
Maarja Kirik is probably the first thing you'll see when entering Rouge. The church is located on top of one of the hills and is highly visible from all directions. It was built in the middle of the 18th century and stands in a nice churchyard with some old trees. Inside, you'll find wooden decorations as they occur often in rural Estonian churches.Related to:

One of Estonia's most beautiful villages
Rouge is often named to be one of Estonia's most beautiful villages. This is due to its extraordinary location. Surrounded by hilly terrain, forests and lakes, the village's houses seem to be placed randomly in between. Wherever you look, the village provides great views into the countryside. Just enjoy it!
Btw, it's NOT pronounced like the French "rouge", but more like "row-guer"Add to your Trip Planner
