Aegna timetable and day cruises
On a day cruise, guests can stay in Aegna for a little over four hours. The island of Aegna is not very large, with a coastline of 10 km, and in case of a well-planned route, it is actually possible to visit the most important and interesting places on the island during that time.
For this occasion, it makes sense to order a tour guide who, in addition to organizing a smooth tour, can also tell you exciting things about the sights of Aegna. In addition, there will definitely be time left for bathing and eating ice cream.
Although Aegna seems to be a small island, a thick primeval forest grows here, and the first-time visitor can easily lose direction and purpose on narrow winding footpaths.
A 3-hour guided tour introduces visitors to the island’s military sites, cultural history, and its unique history.
The first stop is at the densest blockfield in Estonia – 23 protected boulders are located on the 170 × 140 m square, in addition to a dozen smaller ones. We can find out where Tulekivi (Fire Stone) got its name.
Right next to the blockfield is also the island’s unique cemetery.
The second stop is at one of Aegna’s most important military sites, the command post, from where artillery fire of the entire island was once directed. Right next to it, we find the city of Jerusalem.
The third stop takes place in the center of the island, where there was once bustling life before the Second World War. The most prominent objects here are the Flora Officers’ Casino and the huge barrack-canteen.
The fourth stop is one of Aegna’s most powerful military objects – Battery no. 1. Once upon a time, there were two huge artillery towers with a local command center. Not far from the batteries, we can see the ruins of the floodlight shelter and the exit road of the floodlight. However, a few hundred meters away is a nice sandy beach.
After that, the path takes us back to the port, where it is possible to order a great home-cooked lunch.
