The city of Narva is situated in the north-east of Estonia, on the border with Russia, 212 km to the east of Tallinn and 150 km to the west of Saint Petersburg.

The city stands on the left bank of the Narva River, 14 km away from the place where the River flows into the Gulf of Finland.   At the mouth of the Narva River lies the resort town of Narva-Jõesuu.

Narva is on the territory of Ida-Viru county of Estonia and is the largest city in the northeast Estonia.  

The city of Narva has joined the international movement "Child Friendly City" and in 2004 has received a title "Friendly to children and youth". 

The population of Narva is 69410 people; population density is 821-people/km (as of 01.01.2005).

Closeness to the three large water basins - the Gulf of Finland, the Narva Reservoir and Lake Peipsi - greatly affects the local climate. Winter is mild (average temp. –5.2С/22.6F) and summer is cool (average temp. is +16.0C/60.8F).  

The main natural attractions are the Narva River, the Narva Reservoir, other small bodies of water and a glint terrace situated to the north of Tallinn highway. The ashes plateau of the Baltic Power Station makes quite a sight as well.
