First floor of the building includes Tourist Information Center for Northwest Estonia and a gift shop. Here you can buy tickets to the monastery tours and enjoy a selection of souvenirs. Our staff can also advise you on the places to visit and things to do in the surrounding area.

The first floor also includes rooms for hands-on workshops and educational programs both for groups and individual visitors.

Next to the seminary room is a small library, which has an ever-expanding selection of nearly 500 books that shed light to the monastic life. The library is a great place for reflection and study.
