Jõgevamaa - Vooremaa region

Lesen auf Deutsch | Loe eesti keeles

Vooremaa is shared by Jõgeva, Palamuse and Tabivere rural municipalities. Vooremaa – this is a place that can be described as a combination of the most diversified forms of natural beauty and a patchwork landscape. The magnificent sloping landscape is alternated by virgin forests where encounters with wildlife – roe deer, wild boar, bear, fox or even a lynx – are quite common.
Most definitely, you will meet these animals in Elistvere Zoo Park.

The area is rich in rivers and lakes. Endla Nature Reserve, a bog wonderland, is a part of wet areas of international importance. Kilometres of boardwalk pass through the Männikjärve bog, allowing to take glimpses of untouched nature.

The ruins of Laiuse Castle, located next to Jõgeva-Mustvee highway, have stories to tell of German, Russian,
Polish and Swedish inhabitants. In 1700 – 1701, the winter residence of the Swedish king, Karl XII, was located here.

Various thematic events, providing a picture of the life of ancient Estonians, take place in the restored stronghold of Kassinurme and sacred grove at the former site of the ancient settlement.
