Narva Castle (Peterburi maantee 2, Narva) — In the seventh decade of the 13th century, the Danes established a castle as a residence for the Danish King’s vice-Regent. The Narva Castle is the most diverse and best preserved defense structure in Estonia. The area of the castle is 3.2 hectares, and the highest point is the Tall Hermann Tower (51 meters). This castle was subject to conquest by other regional powers in latter times, such as the Swedes and the Russians.
