We drove from Tallinn to Tartu and about 60km(38 miles) before Tartu, decided to take a little spin in Poltsamaa. There is less than 5000 people, so not so much to see or do, but still couple of beautiful churches, nice riverfront and then this almost 750 years old Castle. Unfortunately after WWII it's in ruins, but still worth of little walk and few photos

There isn't a huge amount to see in Poltsamaa but there are the castle walls alongside the river, a park, and a couple of decent restaurants / cafes making this for us a pleasant lunch stop on the way to Tallinn from Tartu. We ate at the new Kohvik O cafe very near the castle, which offered good reasonably-priced food in a modern Scandinavian style setting.
