Jagala Falls Estonia

Jägala Falls are the largest waterfalls in Estonia. They are located approximately 30 km east of the capital city of Estonia – Tallinn, at the village Jägala Joa. These beautiful waterfalls are called Niagara Falls of the Baltic.

Jägala Falls are about 8 meters high. The water of Jägala River cuts into the limestone and formed here about 300 feet long valley. It flows into the nearby water reservoir Linnamäe Veehoidla and then to the Baltic Sea. Jägala Falls partially freeze in winter and get a nice icy backdrop.

The oldest known written record of a water mill in Estonia (from the early 13th century) dates from here.
