Krenholm: the history of the textile giant (EST, ENG, RUS)

KRENHOLM EXCURSION

There is no equal to Krenholm – there was nothing else like this mammoth company with its more than 10,000 workers overlooking the foaming falls of Narva in either Russia or Europe as a whole.

Although the machines in the factory no longer operate, workers no longer beaver away in its workshops and the falls are only open a few times a year, Krenholm's industrial architecture still fascinates people, recalling the glory days of this huge industrial park.

Narva Museum organises excursions to Krenholm at 12:00 every Sunday from 14 April wherein visitors gain an overview of the factory's more than 160 years of history in the midst of monumental industrial architecture.

Led by a museum guide, the tour starts at the old Krenholm gates opposite Joala 32. While on the tour you can leave your car or bus in the free car park next to the gates.

The tour lasts for around 90 minutes. During this time you explored the closed-off grounds of the factory and visit the old factory building itself, where you can take a look at a large knitting hall to better understand the scale of the work that was done here.

The total length of the tour route is around 2.5 km. Since Krenholm is an industrial complex and the tour mainly takes place outdoors, please dress for the weather.

Language: Estonian, Russian or English

Parking: You can leave your car or bus in the free car park next to the gates.
