I had a very nice visit to the Juminda Peninsula (located in the Lahemaa National Park in Estonia) and obviously I took some photos. First off a couple of HDR images I took (used 9 exposures):
In Kuremäe you can find an orthodox Pühtitsa Dormition Convent. The story behind this place is a bit longer so you might want to read it yourself from here. A bit of information you can also find in this post but I’d strongly recommend for you to read more to discover the miraculous history of this convent that attracts so many to this place. Either as tourists or as pilgrims.
The second place in the Virumaa series I would like to show you is a mining park-museum in Kohtla-Nõmme which is a town formed from smaller towns around the oil shale mining area. Near the town is situated the mining park-museum and with some photographs, I will make you a short tour. You can read a bit more about the place here.
On the way to the underground oil shale mine. It is not operational any more but it’s worth to visit.
Even though I have lots and lots of old photos to post, I will start off this brand-spanking-new blog by showing a little series of photos about Virumaa. Virumaa is situated in Estonia and holds many different locations worth seeing. First of them is the medieval city of Rakvere and it’s castle. You can read more from here.
