The pearl of the Gulf of Livonia
Since the island is far from the mainland, not even many Estonians have visited Ruhnu. Nevertheless, there are several reasons why it is called the Pearl of the Livonian Gulf. The main attractions on the island are the wooden church, which is considered the oldest preserved wooden building in Estonia, and a lighthouse with a unique metal construction.
Besides that, Ruhnu has a beautiful long coastline with unique “singing” sand and, of course, the local residents, who are friendly and full of surprises. In addition, Ruhnu hosts many exciting events during the summer months.
