Kärde is a village in Jõgeva Parish, Jõgeva County in eastern Estonia. It was first mentioned already in 1411, allowing the villagers in the year 2011 to celebrate the village's 600th 'birthday'.
Kärde Manor was the location where the Treaty of Cardis between Tsardom of Russia and Swedish Empire in 1661 after the Russo-Swedish War was signed. Kärde Peace House still stands in the old park in the village center to commemorate this historic event.
On the doorstep of Kärde village lies Endla Nature Reserve, established in 1985 to protect the central part of Endla mires which is relatively little affected by human activities. The eight mire complexes are separated by rivers, narrow floodplain meadows and swamp forests. Several overlapping hiking trails and the planked path on Männikjärv bog, which takes visitors to a viewing platform, offer an opportunity to observe different bird and plant species. The centre of the nature reserve with an exposition is in Tooma.
Kärde can boast with not only its beautiful untouched nature and genuine village environment, but also its wonderful citizens. Kärde Village Society (Kärde Küla Selts) was established in 2010 and has since gained more than 40 active members, organized many events and invigorated the village life.
