All believers and clergy were not in favour of the reforms. In 1681 and 1685, when congregation gave its blessing to the East inquisition, it  started the persecution of the Old Believers. During this period there were a lot of beating, confiscation of properties, deportation and even death penalties. The approximate number of executed people has been evaluated to more than tens of thousands.  The Old Believers fled to the remote areas of the country and to neighboring countries. The first Russian Old Believers appeared to Estonian Peipsi coast in Mustvee and Kallaste region in the 17th century. They live there to this day,eventhough the  Soviet Union liquidated the old cultural educational societies and started the repression against the spiritual leaders. The rebirth of Old Believers began in 1995, by which time Estonia had regained its idependency and restored  the Estonian Old Believers Congrecation. There are 11 Old Believers congrecations registered in Estonia: 9 in Lake Peipus region, one in Tallinn and one in Tartu.

A hundred years ago, the rivers that crossed many roads were serious obstacles to people on the road. At that time, bridge constructions were very expensive and time-consuming.

In Kavastu there is a unique opportunity to cross Emajõgi river with a raft. The raft is leaded by the metal chain that is across the river and attatched to the shore.
