Excursion at Kreenholm

VI Narva Opera Festival

EXCURSION AT KREENHOLM

There is no equal to the Kreenholm Manufaktuur – this mammoth company with more than ten thousand workers roaring between the foaming waterfalls of Narva was unique not only in Russia, but also in Europe.

Even though the machines are no longer working, the workers are no longer busy in the workshops and the Narva waterfalls only open a few times a year, the industrial architecture of Kreenholm still inspires, recalling the past glory days with its giant industrial park.

The tour starts at the old gate of the former textile giant Kreenholm opposite Joala 32. During the tour you can leave your car or bus in the free parking lot next to the gate.

The tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours. During this time, you will move around the closed territory of Kreenholm and visit the old factory building, where visitors can see a large weaving hall to better perceive the scale of the work that took place.

The length of the route is around 2.5 km. As it’s an industrial complex and the main part of the route is outside

As it is an industrial complex and the tour takes place mainly outdoors, we ask that you dress according to the weather.

Extreme excursion: Joala Factory

The history of the Kreenholm textile factory is an ideal educational material for learning about the global textile industry of the 19th and 20th centuries: dizzying economic growth and sharp declines, an unprecedentedly large production volume for Estonia and fateful cooperation agreements, the construction of an entire town around the factory and the incredible stories of the workers who ended up here by the will of fate.

We will talk about all of this on our new tour, which takes place in the Joala factory – a red brick building with breathtaking views from the tower. Closed as one of the last ones in the whole Kreenholm complex, the atmosphere of the company has been preserved in the Joala factory premises in the best possible way: the noise of the spinning machines is stored in the walls, while the stairs still remember hundreds of pairs of feet running up and down…

Since the building has been empty for several years, there is no electricity and there are several dangerous places. Consequently, the number of participants is limited. The excursion is suitable from the age of 16, participants must undergo a safety briefing and it is mandatory to wear safety helmets during the excursion.
