Antsla’s Undiscovered Treasures – Lakes


Antsla surprises with its undiscovered treasures – three special lakes!

One summer, two days, three lakes – the year, when Tartu enjoys the status of European Capital of Culture with Southern Estonia, the highlight of the Antsla area will be its three special lakes.

On the first of the lake days, Lake Uhtjärv will be in focus with its local lore and lake art, which you can enjoy both on site and through multimedia channels. The second day at Lake Ähijärv provides an insight into the world of fish. You will have the opportunity to learn traditional skills and craftsmanship techniques, fix a boat and sample fish dishes. As the evening falls, Lake Boose will entice you to explore its shores. With the aid of modern technology, you can watch a fascinating story unfold, which links the local lore about the golden rooster of the former Linda collective farm with the very beginning of the world.

So be sure to head to Antsla on 30-31 August 2024 and not miss this fascinating experience! The sustainable lake days Antsla’s Undiscovered Treasures – Lakes are organised by Antsla rural municipality.
