The square was completed in the spatial programme "Great Public Spaces"


The new central square in Põlva perfectly fits the surroundings and also corresponds to the county’s green lifestyle identity. The locals have certainly adopted the square. The various seating areas are particularly popular in summer nights while the illuminated square delights the eye during the darker seasons.
