Tsitre trail of trees (1 km)

Lääne-Viru County, Lahemaa National Park
The 1 km long trail goes around the park of the former Tsitre summer manor, in a place with a long and colorful history. The renewed Tsitre tree trail has a lot to offer for those interested in history and heritage culture, as well as for friends of trees, walkers in the park and the beach, and birdwatchers.
There are 29 information boards on the track where you can get acquainted with the stories of Tsitre trees and history, with the help of QR-codes: information also available in English and Russian. The information boards have pictures of more than 30 wooden plants, as well as old photos, local traditions and stories that bring us fragments of what happened in the past. The trees in Tsitre Park are a real attraction, especially the ancient pines and old horse chestnuts that have grown curved in poor conditions.
In the seaward part of the trail there is an observation tower built instead of the former Soviet borderguard observation tower. From the tower you can watch water birds stopping in Kolga Bay.
