The Haapsalu Bishop’s Castle and Cathedral, which was established in the 13th century as the centre of the Saare-Lääne Diocese, is one of the best preserved castles in Estonia.

Visit the museum complex in the convent building where you will find exhibition halls with finds from the castle and mysterious vaulted cellars. Rent an audio guide for tour commentary in six languages.
