There is probably an attitude in Rakvere that "snow is our friend, we don't touch him". There are many sidewalks in the city center that have never been snowed all winter and have not seen any sand or granite screens. There is now an almost half-meter uneven layer of ice. There are ice rinks around the railway station, moving between the station and the city center is dangerous even for a healthy and athletic man. How do older people or parents with children move around the city? Shameful negligence! If the argument is that these sidewalks belong to private owners, why are they not fined? And this is not the first such winter.

What a calm and peaceful place to sit and see the water fountains making extraordinary scenes of rainbows in the summers. Right in the middle surrounded by many cafes and grocery stores to buy snacks. ?

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
