Saatse museum

Saatse is a small village with a long and colorful history. The Saatse museum, once a manor house as well as a schoolhouse, presents the story of people in and around Saatse. The museum is located right next to the border between Estonia and Russia. The short, 1.5 km hiking trail runs along the border, with border posts, warning signs and tapes, and a sand strip along the trail. As women have always been quite domestic in Setomaa and men have been able to travel around and across the borders, the museum of Saatse pays special attention to the Seto men and their lifestyle. You can also learn about how the changing borders have affected the lives of people at Setomaa.
