Koguva Village is the best-preserved village ensemble in Estonia (100 buildings, ca 20 permanent inhabitants). A unique milieu is created by the village streets with stone fences, log houses with cane roofs, old trees and draw wells with poles. The buildings of Koguva date mainly from 1880-1930. The oldest building in Koguva, the barn of the Andruse Farm is situated in the centre of the Village. The only tool used in erecting of this building was an axe. The Centre of the Village is the Tooma Farm – the home farmhouse of the writer Juhan Smuul.
