Narva is a city with a long history, it was ruled over by Danes, Germans, Swedes, Russians and Estonians. Each of these periods changed Narva. The city burned down several times but it was almost always rebuilt. During World War II, Narva was on the front line at one point and became a battlefield between the two great powers. The situation was especially dire in March 1944, when the invading Soviet troops subjected Narva to an unprecedented bombardment, which destroyed almost the entire old town of Narva. When the war ended, people who returned to the city found only the ruins of the former Baltic baroque pearl. However, this time the old buildings were not rebuilt, as it would have been before. Now the virtual exposition “New Life of Old Narva” is returning the city to its former glory.
