Set with a magnificent castle - and very large bull sculpture - Rakvere is a small city, the tiny centre of which contains pleasant streets, nicely manicured parks and a lively, youthful population. In addition to the castle there are a few museums and historic churches, but the real charm of this town lies in simply strolling the streets.
Your first stop should be the tourist information office(324 2734; www.rakvere.ee; Laada 14; 9am-6pm Mon-Fri, 10am-3pm Sat & Sun May 15-Sep 14, 10am-5pm Mon-Fri Sep 15-May 14), where you can pick up a town map and walking-tour guide from the affable staff. It's located a block south of the main square.
