Viljandi The Essential
Interesting
For a panoramic view of Viljandi, visitors should head up the former water tower, before getting more intimately acquainted with the town: the church of St John with its soaring Baroque bell tower, the ruins of the medieval castle atop a hill and Lake Viljandi, particularly popular in Summer. Nearby is the Soomaa National Park, a marshy area with rare wildlife which in Spring can be discovered by boat (haabja).
