This is one of several Estonian cities where almost 90% of the population speaks Russian, so Russian tourists always feel very comfortable here. The rest in Narva is truly interesting and diverse.
The City Museum is one of the major cultural facilities of the city. Here each visitor can not only see the priceless exhibits, but also try hand craft instruments that were used in the 17th century on their own. With the help of these instruments each visitor of the museum creates a memorable souvenir that will remind of this unusual excursion. Among the architectural places of interest we should definitely mention Narva Fortress, which construction took place in the 8th century. Inside the fortress you will find a museum and several craft shops with lovely souvenirs. The next remarkable place is the Town Hall. This is the only historical building in the city which was not damaged during the Second World War. When it comes to describing the religious sights of Narva, we simply cannot fail to mention Alexander's Cathedral and the Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ. Finalizing the list of important architectural buildings of this city, we should not forget about Narva Bastions, which has sheltered the local people during the time of war.
In Narva you can attend a very old factory - Krenholm manufacture, which once has employed 10 000 workers. A hospital and several barracks were built for these people; these facilities have not been destroyed and so now they are turned into something like an open-air museum. Every day the guests of the city can attend the local Art Gallery, which has a permanent exhibition and temporary exhibitions of paintings by modern artists. During the warm season of a year Narva Castle traditionally hosts concerts and theater plays. You can also attend several music and art festivals that are conducted here during the year.
