Kloostri observation tower

Pärnu County, Matsalu National Park
From the observation tower on the left bank of the Kasari River, you can enjoy the view of the wide expanse of the river floodplain, where flocks of ducks, geese, swans and waders gather during spring floods. In the summer white storks and eagles nest in the surroundings and fly around, often you can spot moose or roe deer going about their business on the floodplain.
