Narva & Narva-Jõesuu

This weekend we drove out to the eastern border of Estonia. Narva is about 2.5 hours from Tallinn and is right across the river from Russia. The town and the area was completely destroyed in WWII and is now 95% Russian speaking. There isn't a whole lot of interesting things to see or do there. An old church, some rebuild forts and if you're looking for a meal McDonalds is about the only thing worth checking out. From there we drove north along the river to Narva-Jõesuu which is where some of Liisa's relatives where originally from. It's actually quite a nice beach town, water was warm and there were lot's of people about. Now I've seen almost of all of Estonia, just the south east corner and eastern border have yet to be conquered.
