Muhu St. Catherine's church. The first wooden church built to St. Catherine from Alexandria was probably constructed after 1233 when the island of Muhu was occupied by the Livonian Brothers of the Sword.

Kiidjärve water mill: The watermill was built by a local constructor Kristjan Kalling in 1914 and started running on October the 15th. In the 1920's it was acquired by manufacturer Kasper. In 1940 the mill was nationalized and stopped working in 1978. The useless building was handed over to the Kiidjärve Forest District. A new dam was built in 1990 and the mill was renovated in 1991. It started running again on December 30, 1990.  Muinsuskaitseamet | Estonian National Heritage Board, CC-BY

Vastseliina Episcopal castle, 14th - 16th century. The castle was constructed for the Livonian Order in 1342 on the initiative of Landmeister Burkhard von Dreileben. When firearms became common, many reconstructions were done. It is believed that the north-eastern tower was the first defense to be added in late 15th century. The south-eastern round tower is probably from the early 16th century.  Muinsuskaitseamet | Estonian National Heritage Board, CC-BY

The Kiiu tower stronghold, also known as Monk Tower, is one of the Baltics' smallest residential fortifications. It was commissioned by Ferdinand von Tiesenhausen in 1517, and built by the monks from the neighbouring monastery in Kolga. It was partly destroyed in the Livonian war. Later, the tower was used as a maintenance building. In 1973, it was renovated to accommodate a youth club. Currently, the fortress serves as a cafeteria.

Bohoniki i Kruszyniany - Meczety i mizary (cmentarze) w Bohonikach i Kruszynianach stanowią niespotykane nigdzie indziej materialne źródło do dziejów Tatarów Polskich. Są dowodem bogactwa kulturowego i tolerancji religijnej Rzeczpospolitej Obojga Narodów oraz świadectwem wielowiekowego funkcjonowania społeczności muzułmańskiej w państwie chrześcijańskim i zachowania jej odrębności przy jednoczesnej asymilacji.

The Church of the Holy Spirit is the only 14th century church remaining in Tallinn. Originally the church belonged to an almshouse with the same name. In some sources the church has also been called the Town Hall Chapel. Although the first written notes are from the beginning of the 14th century, the church was probably founded at the same time as the almshouse in the beginning of the 13th century. The current choir and nave are constructed in late 13th or early 14th century.

Haapsalu railway station is an excellent preserved example of 20th century wooden architecture. The Keila-Haapsalu route and final station were decided in 1902. Construction began in May 1904, and temporary traffic was possible already in December. The railway station building was designed by architect K. Verheim and engineer V. Vestfalen, constructed during 1905-1907. Regular passenger trains used the route until September 1997.   Muinsuskaitseamet | Estonian National Heritage Board, CC-BY
