Niitsiku is a really old village, the place was first mentioned in the old chronicles in 1601. This year marks 420 years of the first mentioning. The grand anniversary will be remembered by a memorial stone constructed this summer. After World War II, the locals started to bury the villagers who have passed away in the beautiful pine forest next to the village. The little quiet graveyard is still the last resting place for the residents of this area.
For many years, the mill of Niitsiku was operated on Rebasmäe stream. There is an old tavern in the neighbourhood, which has the date 1819 carved on its wall. In Soviet time and in early the 1990’s, the timber shop of Räpina operated in Niitsiku, providing jobs for a great number of people. By the lead of the shop’s foremen, a very special spider-form bus station was built in Niitsiku. This bus station is still here and is very unique in the world. The waiting pavilion is visited by people from further and closer every year.
