History

More than 750 years ago Rakvere Castle was also named Wesenbergh.

During the tsarist period, the same street was called Peterburi and during first German occupation, it was named after Prince Heinrich. Since the beginning of Estonian independence, the street has a proud name of Tallinn. First wooden house at the current place of a brick building was built by Russian church priest Stepen Roždestvenski. By the end of 19th century there has been a bakery and pastry shop, spirit cellar and a shop in this building.

Later the building belonged to Mr. G. Kansbergh, who was the mayor of Rakvere for a brief time. In 1907 Mr. Kansberg built a two-story brick house – current Hotel Wesenbergh. Shops were on the ground floor and apartments on the second.

In the final years of The Estonian Republic in 1937 there was a police station in the building and a local perfect had an apartment on the second floor. In 1940 the house was nationalized, prison cells for those who got arrested were located in the court yard. 1941 the building was damaged during the bombing and stayed in ruins until the end of war. After the war it was renovated and in 1948 guesthouse Oktoober opened its doors.

Rakvere is Estonia’s fifth largest city, situated in northern Estonia, 20 km south of the Gulf of Finland.

In 1226, Henrik of Latvia wrote the Chronicle of Livonia, which included a description of an ancient Estonian wooden castle located on hill nearby. After the Livonian War the wooden fortress ruins were replaced by a large and powerful stone castle. The castle's ruins are nowadays Rakvere’s main tourist attraction. You can eat medieval dishes, see the medieval armour exhibition, visit the horror and torture chambers and even try your hand at archery.

Rakvere is also an attractive and rapidly developing town with quite an interesting character, where you can find a theatre, several nice hotels and a lot more.
