This former Cistercian monastery is located in Padise in Estonia. It was an important place in the medieval Estonia. The monastery was settled in 1310 by monks of Dünamünde Abbey in Latvia. It was converted into a fortress after its dissolution in 1559 and later used as a country house until 1766. It fell into ruin after a number of wars, with restoration only commencing in the 1930s.
Now it is a museum. The entrance to the monastery is free.
There are some places to explore inside. Some rooms, the yard or nice chapel with vaulted ceilings.
Also you can climb up to the tower. Views from the top are quite good.
