Lahemaa National Park

Lahemaa National Park was established for the protection, study and popularisation of nature and cultural heritage, including ecosystems, biodiversity, landscapes, ethnic culture and sustainable use of natural resources of North Estonia. This is the conservation area for woodland, wetland and coastal ecosystems, but also semi-natural communities (alvars), geological monuments (the Baltic Klint) and historical and architectural monuments. The national park belongs to the European Natura 2000 network as Lahemaa's bird and wilderness area.

The total area of Lahemaa National Park is 747,84 sq km, of which 479,10 sq km of mainland and 268,74 sq km of sea.
