Overview

If you’re tired from exploring the museums and traipsing up and down Vallimägi hill, the best place to take the weight off your feet is Rakvere’s central square, which was constructed in 2004. Kids will have fun running around on the bumps and other features and riding the toy animals. The contemporary bus pavilion, the yellow domes in the square and the fountain create a modern and interesting atmosphere.Did you know…?*The central square in Rakvere has been home to a sculpture dedicated to honorary citizen Arvo Pärt entitled 'Young man on bicycle listening to music' since 11 September 2010

Rakvere's Central Square is world-famous by city's Christmas trees - if you getting there during Christmas time, you will probably see something very innovative :)

It is a nice town and square. It has a different Christmas tree every year and the fun fact is that every sculpture or place has a story behind it.

This city one the most greatest and gorgeous places I have ever visited in Estonia. Simply I fell in love with Rakvere and I guess that I was the first Azerbaijani who visited this small city 💕👌

A great place to stop off at, if you're heading from or to Tallinn. Friendly Locals, good modern art exhibits and most of all a reliable bus station

If you visit the area, go have a small walk in the Central Square. There is a good pub-restauraunt (Berliini Trahter) nearby, a small soviet style shopping mall, unique modern art etc. There are many restaurants and cafes in the area and it's a nice...More

I really dislike the cobbled surface of this square and resent it replacing something much more authentically Estonian, a market place which operated into the early 21st century. I find the cobbles difficult to walk on and can imagine many kids falling over with skinned...More

Visually interesting yellow done lights, pretty at dusk, when its lit up. Kids had fun, roaming around each area was different. Not a long stop at all, but then go visit the bakery!
