Overview

Building of the Paide Order Castle started in 1265. Local white limestone was used to build the castle. The first building on Vallimagi Hill was the octagonal Tall Hermann Tower, which was destroyed by the retreating Red Army in 1941. The tower was restored for the 650th anniversary of the St George's Night Uprising in 1993.Interesting facts:The stronghold established in Paide was the second castle built by the order in the territory of Estonia after Viljandi.Paide Vallitorn became the symbol of Paide Town and Jarva County and is depicted on their coats of arms.There is a memorial on Paide Vallimagi Hill to the four Estonian elders executed during the uprising.

This Museum is in the middle of castle remains that are located right in the heart of Paide behind the big church(no fee) that I also recommend visiting. You must be able to walk the stairs but I think there is a back entrance for...More

The exhibition is clearly too childish for grown ups and too boring for kids. Main attractions are a plastic sword, weird noises, elevator which is decorated with discarded computer parts (to give it a futuristic look) and thumbnail sized portraits of Danish and Swedish kings...More
