Second festival venue: Jõhvi
The town’s history began in medieval times. It has been mentioned in 13th century Danish chronicles. Later, Jõhvi became a part of the postroad junction between Petersburg and Tallinn. In addition, the railroad was built here and Jõhvi gained the status of a town. Here you can see old churches, a medieval town hall and a hedgehog statue.
