Haapsalu is a small medieval town on the shores of the Baltic Sea. City rights were granted already in 1279. The 13th century Episcopal Fortress together with the Cathedral are the pearls of Haapsalu.
Haapsalu’s warm sea water, healing mud and fresh air have made Haapsalu famous for centuries. Only a hundred kilometers from the capital, it has always been a beloved summer center in Estonia.
The oldest part of Haapsalu is built on a strip of land that was formed from many plateaus only a few hundred years ago. Narrow streets, where wooden houses have not changed much since the beginning of the 20th century, bring you to the sea again and again. Due to its abundance of water, Haapsalu has been called the Venice of the Nordic countries.
Above all, Haapsalu is a city of people. A little independent peace and quiet are not the only values to find this over 700-year-old old town: the eventful summer season has become the trademark of Haapsalu.
