I’ve seen many waterfalls since I seriously got into photography – many of them were small and dry, others were completely covered with moss, some were among tallest in the world, but the truth is that I hadn’t seen frozen waterfall before visiting Jägala Falls in Estonia in winter last year.
Measured as 50 meters wide and 7.8 meters high, Jägala Falls is the widest and tallest waterfall in Estonia and sometimes called as the Niagara Falls of the Baltic. Its waters flow over the limestone cliff edge and then into the Baltic sea following the bed of the Jägala River.
Jägala Falls is located near a small village Jägala Joa, 30 kilometers east of Tallinn, Estonian capital city. There is a carpark just next to the waterfall, so access is extremly simple.
