About
Alatskivi Fort, the fort of ancient Estonians, was probably used as a vassal stronghold in the 13th and 14th centuries. The fort is protected by lakes in the south and the south-east and a slope that is 10 metres high on the northern side. The fort is surrounded by a moat that is a couple of metres deep and 5 m wide. The yard of the stronghold has an oval shape.Interesting facts:- old folk stories say that stone cellars with iron doors are hidden inside the hill. People believe that squires used to lock rebellious peasants there in the old times.

Stop by if travelling the way. Ok fee, 7€ for adults. Interesting stories of composer Tubins lifework. Really convincing waxdolls in one of the rooms! Quit scary...

The Alatskivi castle / fort / loss / mõis has both a museum and a restaurant. At my visit there the restaurant was booked for a wedding, it seemed to be very popular for those events. A guided tour is available, for a fee. The castle has been very well renovated and has a big park, with a frisbeegolf ground.
