Locatie en vrije tijd

Lohusuu village is located on the border area of two interesting regions both of which have a Russian-speaking majority. The first one is East-Viru County, where oil shale mines, towns from the Soviet era, and industrial landscapes intertwine with a huge forestry region i Alutaguse National Park. The latter is the last refuge to the Estonian population of the Siberian flying squirrel (Pteromys volans). The second is the coastline of Lake Peipus i the 4th largest lake in Europe i which comprises picturesque small towns and fishermen villages. The coastal area is the home to Russian Old Believers, who emigrated here many centuries ago to find shelter from religious prosecution. Their traditional dishes, including smoked fish, and onions are worth tastingLeisure timeBoard games, sauna, swimming, hiking and exploring the local surroundings, etc.
