ABOUT TÜRI

The Türi Parish Municipality is located in the southern part of Järva County and is one of the largest in Estonia. The Rural Municipality in its present form was created in 2005 upon the unification the former Türi, Oisu and Kabala Rural Municipalities and the Town of Türi.

The wealth of the Türi Rural Municipality is its primeval nature. The hilly area that expands from Kirna toward Türi, Väätsa and Paide is so singular in the flat relief of Central Estonia that the Türi Drumlin Field Reserve was created in 1992. In the southern tip of the rural municipality, hikers can walk along the banks of meandering forest rivers and streams. The longest river—the 38-kilometer Saarjõgi—even has its own primeval valley that marks the beginning of the Rassi Expedition, which provides an introduction to the life of the Forest Brothers and the species-rich nature. In addition to proud forest massifs, one will find an abundance of protected orchids. The small spotted eagle is not uncommon, and black storks also nest in this area.
The landscape has a quite a different appearance along the Paia-Viljandi Highway: juniper fringes mixed with rowans, and an uneven land surface eroded by numerous sinkholes. According to legend, Kalevipoeg descended to hell through one of the largest cave mouths in the local Kurla karst area.

The most important attractions in the rural municipality are the numerous manors: Kolu, Särevere, Lokuta, Tori, Kabala and Laupa. Manor schools operate in the last two. Old school buildings have also survived in Türi and Retla.
The Türi St. Martin’s Church, built in the 13th century, towers in the center of Türi, which the only known tower cock with multi-colored wings invites you to explore.
