Kuremaa Mill

The fully renovated Kuremaa mill reopened in 2009. The first floor is home to a party room with its own fireplace and a sales counter, while the second floor is the perfect place for exhibitions and training events. The third floor hosts a display on the Dutch-style windmills that can be found in Estonia - including its most impressive piece, a model of the Kuremaa windmill. On the top floor you can admire the views over Vooremaa from the narrow windows.

Rajakula Old Believers' Worship House

It is believed that the Raja congregation of Old Believers was established in the first quarter of the 18th century. The congregation was given permission to build its own church only in 1879. The church was destroyed during the Second World War – the only thing left is the belfry. The present worship house has 11 rooms. In 1854–1930 Gavriil Frolov lived in the worship house. He taught children icon-writing, reading and writing in Old-Slavic, also singing based on old musical notation.

Laiuse Fortress Ruins

Construction of the Laiuse fortress was launched by the Livonian Order in the late 14th century to defend its eastern borders. The first defensive structure in Estonia to be fitted with firearms, it gained its definitive appearance in the late Middle Ages. Cannon towers were added to the fortress in the mid-15th century. The fortress crumbled in 1559 but was restored, with wooden barracks built at the end of the Swedish era, which accommodated Karl XII and his entourage from 1700–1701. After the Great Northern War the fortress lay in ruins. Did you know...? - The fortress ruins are today the site of historical snow battles in winter and more peaceful events in summer.

Monument and Memorial Park to Betti Alver

The park and monument dedicated to Betti Alver were opened with a ceremony on the writer's 90th birthday in 1996. This is not a traditional bust of a writer, but a symbol focussed on creation. The poet's autograph, signature in stone, is in the base of the monument. The monument as a whole depicts the airy lightness, classic strictness and energetic striving of the poet's works, but also shows contrasts, suppressing and destructive forces. The general image of the monument represents Betti Alver's fate and story.
