Suur Munamägi

Suur Munamägi, the highest road in Estonia

Suur Munamägi ("Big Egg Mountain") is a mountain peak at an elevation of 318m (1,043ft) above the sea level, located in Võru County on the south-eastern corner of Estonia.

The road to the summit is the highest road of Estonia (and the Baltic states). It’s paved and pretty narrow. The last 450 meters are closed to private vehicles. The usage of the road is allowed only with the special permit.

On the summit there’s a 29.1 metres (95 ft) high observation tower. The views from the top are amazing. A must visit. It provides its visitors with a splendid 50 km range view of the Estonian nature. The current tower, the sixth in line, was constructed in 1939, and reconstructed in 1969. There’s a pleasant indoor-outdoor cafe on the ground floor, and another selling burgers and fudge back on the main road.
