- The history of the episcopal Castle of Haapsalu dates back to the 13-th century when Haapsalu was first mentioned in written documents. It is one of the most remarkable examples of Estonian Middle-Age fortress architecture and it has stayed in quite a good condition. There is a legend of White Lady connected with the old castle and if you visit us in August and choose the full moon night you can be lucky to see her appear on the window of the chapel of the Dome Church. Lots of events take place in the castle ruins - you can climb the tower and have a splendid view over the whole town, you can visit the museum and get to know the ancient weaponry and you can even see the lab of the alchemist and taste the food these days.
