We highly recommend “Supelsaksad” (Swimming holidaymakers) for lunch as this year the restaurant won the prominent Silverspoon culinary award. Enjoy delicious salads, soups and main courses, freshly baked buns and amazing cakes in cosy and stylish interior with colourful furniture, laces, tablecloths and selected coffee sets.

Afternoon departure for Viljandi, to explore the characteristic beauty of this lovely South-Estonian town and enjoy its beautiful lake and impressive castle ruins that were once home to a powerful Livonian Order.

For dinner we will head to Sangaste Rye Restaurant to taste rye, one of the basic ingredients in Estonian cuisine. Rye is declared to be Estonian national grain and rye bread the most important national food. Try the oldest known rye sort, Sangaste rye that was cultivated here 130 years ago. Together with the traditional dishes included in the menu, you can also find some dishes that contain rye to a smaller or larger extent.

Overnight at Sangaste Castle- the recently lavishly renovated exceptional historicist style Sangaste Castle features magnificent ball halls, gothic-style foyer and English-style hunting hall. This beautiful castle was inspired by the Windsor Castle in England.
