The “brand” of Kuressaare is a very well preserved 14th century episcopal castle which houses the Museum of Saaremaa. Visitors of the castle can order medieval dinner and enjoy the view over the town and the sea opening from the tower café. The old town, built between the 17th and 19th centuries, abounds in dining and entertainment spots, several high-standard health spas, and a yachting harbour.
South of Kuressaare lies the protected Loode oak wood, and further down the Sõrve Peninsula where in World War II some of the heaviest battles in Estonia took place.
