Singing Mother Monument

On the vista overlooking Obinitsa Lake stands the stone Singing Mother Monument. It's a memorial to all the "singing mothers" (Estonian: lauluemad) of Setomaa. The statue was erected in 1986. Around its base are many stones for local singers. The area around the monument offers a good view of Obinitsa Lake and the older part of the village. This is also a good place for a group picture. To the left of the Singing Mother Monument is Obinitsa's old school-church (1904).
