The baroque town of Old Narva was completely destroyed during World War II. Today only the rebuilt Town Hall remains. In this application we have reconstructed the buildings around the old Town Hall Square (Raekoja Plats).
To experience what the old Town Hall square looked like with you iPhone or iPad you need to solve a 'photo positioning puzzle'. We have selected six historical photos of the buildings around the square and you need to find the position and orientation of the photographer when the pictures were taken, some time back in the 1930s. Start with the picture of the Town Hall itself and follow the guiding instructions on the screen.
When all the photos have been placed and oriented correctly you will be rewarded with a simulation of what the Raekoja Plats looked like more that 80 years ago.
Then you can also touch the screen to explore background information about Old Narva.
The Old Narva application is a proof-of-concept experiment developed as part of the Cross Motion Interreg project. It has been developed as a collaboration between the SitsimLab-project (Dept. of Media and Communication, University of Oslo), Tag of Joy, CodeGrind AB and University of Tallinn.
