Haapsalu, which is bordered by the sea on three sides, fits on a piece of land with a size of just 10.59 km2. The Old Town is located on a peninsula with two eskers, which continue to the north-west as a chain of islets (holms) connected to the...more
I had heard so much about Haapsalu so I guess my espectations were too high. It is a neat little place, but there isn´t really much to do. You can see the castle in 10 minutes. The promenade isn´t really that spectacular. I guess this...More

It's definitely worth paying a...More
We wandered around the old town of Haapsalu and were really surprised to find so many interesting buildings to look at and photograph, and a wide variety of bars and restaurants. We wished we had not eaten elsewhere so that we could sit on one...More
