Owner description: The park is located on the slope of the ancient valley and is named after the ruins of the order castle. When the town started to grow in the second half of the 19th century the need for a recreational zone arose. In 1863 the right to use the castle hills was received from the manor. The works were initiated in 1893.In 1925 the Varese sild (Crow bridge) was finished and connected the town with the park.Interesting to know:· the works where initially carried out by convicts. These were people who were bearing liability in the house of detention for whatever reason and were thereby able to shorten their sentence.A main component of the landscape of the park is the relief, the proximity of a body of water is also important.Take a look at the aerial panorama (picture by Joel Tammet).

Reviewed 27 May 2014

Viljandi is a really nice small town and the Lossipark is just perfect for a quiet afternoon walk - really nice view on the Lake of Viljandi and a lots of green around you in summer time. Just lovely! :)
