Pärnu, known as the Estonia’s summer capital, is a city in south-western Estonia on the coast of Pärnu Bay. The city has long been a popular summer holiday resort and offers many hotels, restaurants, and large golden beaches. Pärnu is also popular with sailors and recreational sea-farers being built on the mouth of the Pärnu River, which flows through the city.
Lush green parks and a historic centre add to Pärnu’s appeal, as do its first-rate museums and galleries, with colorful boutiques and shops found in the Old Town. It’s still possible to see parts of the old medieval city moat and the Tallinn Gate, built in 1690, and the Red Tower, the last remnant of the 15th century citadel.
Cultural events take place in St. Elizabeth church, with its trademark rooster, and in Pärnu Concert Hall. The city has a long tradition of cultural events including an opera festival, a nude art exhibition and an anthropological film festival.Travel Jam
