Estonia’s summer capital Pärnu is first and foremost known for the warm and white sandy beach. In addition to the beautiful beach, however, the city also boasts large green parks and long avenues of trees, where it is nice to take a walk or a bicycle ride. The entire coastal area of Pärnu is a part of the nature preserve, with footpaths, a hiking trail, and observation towers established for better access. To get acquainted with the wildlife and environment, pay a visit to the Pernova Environmental Education Centre, located in a building with a grass roof.

You will find natural beaches, tranquil endless bogs and ancient forests in Pärnu County. Lots of hiking routes and bird observation towers are waiting for you. The floods in Soomaa National Park, also known as the fifth season, offer unforgettable sights during spring. Pärnumaa wildlife is closely linked to culture and history; all of these are combined in the Romantic Coastline route – a 250 kilometre journey down the coast of Pärnumaa with exotic diversions to the Kihnu Island and the interior.
