Padise – Full of Mystery and Beauty
Padise is a charming village in the Lääne-Harju parish, only 50 kilometers from Tallinn. This place lays between fields and forests and hides many amazing tourism pearls in it. From the famous Padise Monastery and the beautiful manor house to the paradise of summer concerts Kalju-Lava.
The monastery was built by the Cistercians in the 14th century. The monastery was built over a period of 200 years. After the recently completed thorough restoration, the monastery is open to visitors again. Today, the only medieval interior features of the monastery that have remained intact are its 14th century church bell (the oldest in Estonia) which can be found in Harju-Risti church and the rare Calvary group from the same century which is on display at St. Nicholas’ church.
Interesting to know: the church hall of the Padise Monastery is, thanks to good acoustics and a special aura, an appreciated concert venue
Padise Kastell is a cozy cafe that has quickly become popular thanks to its exciting interior design, cosy atmosphere, healthy and delicious food, and friendly service. The cafe is owned by two friends from Padise, one of whom is a chef and the other is passionate about the cocktail world. When visiting the café, you can be quite sure to meet them. They also throw many exciting events from time to time!
The stunningly beautiful manor has been renovated since the time of its original owners, the von Ramms, and now houses a cosy hotel with 20 guest rooms and an a la carte restaurant renowned for its cuisine.
This is a place where you can enjoy rural simplicity in a beautiful manor milieu.
