Beautifully built

In 1894 and 1897, a plot of land was transferred from the Tohisoo and Kohila manors to build a church. The church was designed by architect Vladimir Lunski. The cornerstone was laid in July 1899. The church was consecrated on January 28, 1901. In 1950 the church was closed. During the Soviet era, the church building was used as a warehouse. In 1993 the congregation was reopened. The church has a new iconostasis. Author E. Haabsaar

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
