Ennuksemäe forest brothers’ bunker

Have you heard of the forest brothers?
I invite you to the Ennuksemäe forest brothers’ bunker, which is the largest place in Estonia that tells its history.

It was first founded by brothers Jaan and Evald Sova in 1944, when they fled the occupation authorities. The bunker has been restored and destroyed several times.
Today, you will find a restored bunker with two entrances and exits, six bunk beds, a heated stove, and a tunnel which connects the bunker to the entrance at the foot of the hill.

The bunker is open every day of the year.
Come alone or with family or friends. Everyone is welcome!
