Narva – autumn capital of Estonia
From September to October Narva carries the title of the autumn cultural capital of Estonia. This symbolic designation demonstrates the favourable attitude from city of Tallinn towards Narva and its interest to revive the local life as well as give an opportunity to demonstrate its attractive side. Tallinn passes on the symbolic status of the Estonian capital to Türi in spring, then in summer to Pärnu and finally to Narva in autumn. The agenda of the autumn capital programme is varied and full of activities, most of which have the national status. Firstly it was held in 1999 and from 2009 Narva bore this title annually.
