Karula National Park (2005)

Original title: Karula rahvuspark

Documentary Duration 26:05

Karula National Park is situated almost on the southern border of Estonia, far away from big towns. It is a small world – one landscape, one forest, and one parish. The Karula landscape came into being 12 thousand years ago. Estonia was then covered with thick ice, which started to melt and therefore created several unusual shapes of landscape such as the rounded hills, stretched eskers, and ice flow melting slopes. All these forms make Karula almost a textbook example of an ice age-shaped landscape.

Director: Anne-Mari Neider
