Environment

The small city lying between hills has lots of greenery, quiet and beauty, which just allure to spend your free time here. Intsikurmu forest park, which offers scenic beauty, singing birds and also winding tracks through the forest, is a pleasant place for people who want to take a walk or pursue sports. An open-air stage for choir singing, where the first Estonian song festivals were held in the years 1855 and 1857, has made Intsikurmu famous throughout Estonia. The open-air stage can hold about 3,500 singers but all who are eager can dance on the grass in front of it. Entertaining open-air parties and concerts attract you to have a good time!
