Old traditions are still alive and honoured by the Old Believers living on the shores of Peipsi. Varnja, Kasepää, Kolkja – all three are diverse linear settlements (villages), where museums, prayer houses, cemetaries will be worth your while if you look them up on the trip around the area.
The Baltic-German culture is represented by the stately Alatskivi Manor. Old buildings in the heart of the manor are continually being repurposed. However, the grand Alatskivi Castle deserves the special attention, as there one may find expositions depicting lives of manor owners and servants.
