Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Very easy to reach by car from the main road. Good parking area. Loop trail with lots of very good information in English about the various glacial landforms and it's changes during times. This is a protected Area, please do not step outside the trail and do not fish and do not swim. The trends of paleodata that integrate the changes in the biogeochemical matter have clear signals about changes in the state of the ecosystem in L. Viitna during the last decades. A gradual increase in organic productivity should reflect a greater oxygen demand in the hypolimnion. As a result the hypolimnion became seasonally anoxic earlier and its pH level remained low for a longer time.

    Tall steeples are visible from many miles away - particularly in flat countryside. St. Katariina's steeple is no exception, rising clearly above the copse of trees that now surround this 17C church. The steeple is visible from the three main access routes - Tapa (from the south), Viitna (to the west) and Rakvere (to the north).
    Minimalist exterior - all white. The facade is symmetrical with the tower base of the steeple acting as the central feature.
    Minimalist interior. Christmas Eve eucharist services in 2005-2008 are memorable for the sacramental wine, from a thermos flask, bringing a moment of warmth to the candle-lit congregation sitting in an unheated church with temperatures as cold outside, -15C, as inside!
    Of the 4 monuments, the three within close proximity to the church are:
    (i) WAR of INDEPENDENCE 1918-1920
    Located opposite the church facade and entrance. The vast size of this monument indicates how important the War of Independence was to the inhabitants of the local community, which is true for every community in Estonia.
    (ii) 1994 'Estonia' FERRY DISASTER.
    Located some 50m to the west of the church. The size of the monument reflects more the worth of the loss than the number lost in the community when the ferry sank. Few are the communities in Estonia that were wholly untouched by the catastrophe of the sinking. Kadrina's 'mayor' was aboard the ferry.
    (iii) THE LOST and those who did not return from either war service or deportations to Siberia. This slab of slate is set into the wall of the cemetery at the entrance (directly opposite Konsum supermarket). This is an unnamed, generic, monument. Few are the communities in Estonia untouched by the horror of both World War II, which pitted Estonian conscripts in Soviet Russia's Red Army against Estonian conscripts in Germany's Wehrmacht, and the Communist deportations of Estonians to Siberia.

    The 4th and furthest is the Emakeel (mother language) [Estonian Language] Monument, which has its own review in TripAdvisor

    Located beside Kadrina Gymnasium and the school's tennis courts, this modernist monument was erected in 1994. The profile of a cubist head with opened lips clearly indicates the language link.
    The interesting twist is that the monument is not honouring the Estonian language but the contributions, of four of the pastors at St. Katariina Church, to the development of Estonian as a literary language.

    Our group of eight people (all with previous riding experience) did four days of horseback riding in the beautiful North-Estonian nature. I do not know a spot more suitable for horse trekking: there are kilometers and kilometers of forest paths suitable for trotting and galloping. We rode on the beach and in the sea. A truely relaxing experience! All the horses are extremely safe and Annika, the owner, made us feel most welcome - all our needs were catered for. We stayed in different, beautiful locations, ate lovely local food (both lunch and dinner always with a dessert!) and got to explore the local culture at it's best.
    I could not recommend the place, the people and the horses more!! I will definitely visit soonest again!
