Overlooking its Russian counterpart on the other side of the river, Narva Castle represents the city's top attraction and supports a local historical museum. Visit the fortification, originally constructed by the Danish in 1256 and upgraded to its sturdy stone version in the 1400s, and explore its grounds and gardens. Climb to the top of the 51 m (167 ft) high main defensive tower, standing guard imposingly over the rest of the complex. From there you'll be rewarded with a sweeping view of the surrounding town and a good vantage point to see across the river into Russia. At the museum you'll learn more about the history of the castle and the city of Narva itself. There are often temporary art and other exhibits held there.

In 1993, when I was there for the first time, countless old photos of Narva from the time before the First World War hung in the Langen Hermann. Unfortunately, they are no longer there. Perhaps one wants to erase the memory of the once strong German population. .
Две величественные крепости - Нарвская и Ивангородская отлично смотрятся вместе. В замке довольно интересный музей. С верхней площадки можно увидеть полностью пограничный мост Дружба more »Two majestic fortresses - Narva and Ivangorodskaya look great together. The castle is quite an interesting museum.
