Mummassaare campfire site

The campfire site is located just near the beach. The name Mummassaare is believed to come from the French language (Mon Blansière - my pleasure). In the 19th century, this beach was a summer resort for the noblemen and merchants of St. Petersburg and Narva. In particular, Mummassaare is captivated by its nature. Here and there spring streams flow into the sea and make the vegetation lush. In 1936, a rare Bronze Age ax was found near Mummassaare. The so-called Tannenberg Line from the Second World War also started here, which is a complex of fortifications that ran across the Sinimägi Mountains and Sirgala to the middle part of the Narva River.
