About Haapsalu

Location for the Yoga Festival: Estonia, Haapsalu 

The yoga festival takes place in a small seaside resort town on the West Coast of Estonia. Haapsalu is a wonderful little town with narrow streets, a miniature town hall and romantic wooden dwelling houses, and warm sea water. Just one hour drive from the capital Tallinn!

The main stage of the Festival, for beginning and ending ceremonies, as well as yoga classes and concerts lies in the historic Bishop’s castle from the 13th century. The so-called Bazaar for yoga lifestyle products is also located in the castle area. Lectures and workshops will be held in the local modern culture hall close by. You can see the panorama aerophoto picture of the town and the castle here.

Regarding accommodation, you can come with you own tent or you can stay on your own mat and sleeping bag in a local school for a couple of Euros. If you want to say in a hostel, then the Hostel closest to the festival is called Old Town Bowling.
