We had a through visit to Kuresaare Piiskopilinnus with a knowledgeable guide. Intetesting history and intriguing facts from past centuries. Great views from the narrow roof terrace surrounding the hole castle!

The castle is a must-see when in Kuressaare! The castle building and grounds are beautiful and full of history, and the museum is exceptionally well-done! Highly recommended!

In the castle you get basic idea of the living in a medieval castle. Almost even more interesting is the museum that gives a picture of the life in Saaremaa in general during Soviet occupation.

The surroundings of the castle are well-kept. Very transparent. Easily accessible and noticed. The environment is also designed to be a pleasure to spend time with the children. Enjoying the spring even looking at the rare bird species in the area.

Kuressaare castle presents well preserved medieval fortification. It is an impressive historic site. Today it serves a site for concerts and other events. A few hours at minimum should be allocated to visit this great attraction.
