At first look this building seems funny or terrible. But if you look on the new college building and old Town hall building at the same time and from the correct viewpoint, both buildings create an unison ensemble.

With its funny platform/ceiling/roof, this modern college building is actually more than it is for tourists as the coffee shop situated in the basement floor boasts itself "the best coffee in Narva". I haven't tried them all, but this one was for sure the most expensive. Loud music and hip atmosphere guaranteed...

Nara University College is a nice place for seminars, for good food and in general worth dropping in. In this house you will completely forget that its almost at the eastern boarder of EU. The building is very modern and like a hidden gem in the middle of former Soviet architecture.

Narva College, a part of Tartu University is a jewel of modern architecture. Based on an original building that was destroyed during WWII, it has brought beauty and controversy in equal measure due to it's striking facade, dominating the old town square. Narva is very much an old soviet city, with the buildings to match, and the college is designed to inject a piece of the modern, optimistic Estonia into this relic of the soviet era. The college is open to the public, has free wifi and a well stocked cafe, and its design opens the mind, giving 'headspace' for the students and residents alike.

We visited the college as part of a family holiday and it really is an impressive building. It would be a pleasure to study or spend any time here.
