Kuressaare Theatre, which is thought to have been constructed in the early 19th century, has previously played host to the Estonian Society and was also the summer home of the Secret Adviser of St Petersburg. With a history rich in tradition, the building was given a new lease on life in the early 1990s when cultural figures from the island of Saaremaa were once again gripped by the utopian idea of restoring the theatre. And today that's what we have once more - Kuressaare Theatre, in its very own building!

This church is thought to have stood in Jämaja since the 13th century, although nothing remains today of the original building. The church we see today, in Historicist style, was constructed in the second half of the 19th century. What makes it special is its proximity to the sea: the subject of its altar painting could only be found in a church where the sounds of the sea are heard through the window. Jämaja cemetery is located a little away from the church, practically on the beach. It is the only cemetery in Estonia this close to the water's edge.
