Muhu, is an island in the Baltic Sea. With an area of 198 km² it is the third largest island belonging to Estonia.

Koguva is a small, very peaceful rural village. There are many buildings that are centuries old, dating back to feudal times under Swedish rule, and are still in use today. The northern shore of Muhu, which is claimed to have the clearest water anywhere in the Baltic Sea, is only a short distance away.
