Situated in 130 km from Tallinn in the mouth of the Pärnu River, on the shore of the Baltic Sea, it is known as “summer capital” of Estonia because of the great liveliness that reigns in the city during the summer period, thanks to the numerous visitors attracted by its sand beaches and beautiful forests that surround it. The city has 750 years of history and hanseatic past.

Short panoramic tour of Parnu. During our short stop, we will walk around Ruutli, Parnu’s main pedestrian street, which features many typical wooden and stone Estonian buildings. We will see the Tallinn Gates, also known as the King’s Gates, and medieval Red Tower, dating back to the 15th century, making it the oldest monument in Parnu. We will also admire the exteriors of two beautiful baroque churches, Lutheran St. Elisabeth Church and Orthodox St. Catherine Church, the latter of which was built by order of the Empress of Russia, Catherine the Great.
