Welcome to the most eastern point of the European Union, the gateway from barbaric Russia. Castle on the left belongs to Estonia. Fortress on the right belongs to Russia. This is historical border between two civilizations. I will take you on a tour across Narva. Shots are taken on smartphone during last year.

Castle and local beach in summer is cool place to rest. Before WWII it looked slightly differently.
