UNIQUE LOCATION – HISTORY, TREASURES AND NATURE UNDER PROTECTION
Rebala village in Jõelähtme parish Harju county roots back thousands of years. The local area is the largest of the old settlements in Northern Europe. The steps for the first residents date back more than 10 000 years.
Due to the favorable location and already a developed culture Rebala became one of the favorite places of the 9th century Vikings. Estonia’s largest Viking silver treasure was found from the nearby Linnakse village. The Rebala heritage conservation area (found in 1987), which on it’s 74 km2 area has more than 300 archaeological monuments since the Neolithic times, helps to retain the rich cultural heritage.
The fascinating limestone quarries with beautiful views from the cliffs are just a small part of the treats that Rebala has to offer. The pure and untouched nature provides nourishment to both body and soul.
