On April 12, 2023, the construction works of the parking lot of Viru bog nature trail will begin. The construction of the parking lot is preceded by deforestation, during which inside the necessary area the forest is cut down. The object will be completed in December 2023. We ask for understanding from visitors and apologize for the inconvenience. The oldparking lot is still in use.
