Being both mysterious and majestic, Võrtsjärv has always fascinated writers and poets. From as early as the 18th century, scientists have studied lake-life in Võrtsjärv and abundant fish resources are the means of subsistence for locals. Centuries have affected the natural environment near the lake and left their trace in the culture and history of the region.

The beauty of Võrtsjärv and its surrounding nature has, throughout the ages, attracted visitors and has been offering possibilities for activity holidays and for spending free time. However, difficulties, at the end of the Soviet period and during the first years of independence, hindered the recreational development in the region.
