Parking in Pärnu

Parking in Pärnu starting from 1 May 2024

There are both public parking areas as well as private parking lots in Pärnu. There are three paid parking areas in the city: the Old Town area, the City Centre area and the Beach area.

Read more about the parking arrangements on the website of Pärnu (in Estonian). The website also provides information on parking permits (fixed-period cards).

Parking in the public parking areas of the city of Pärnu is organised and supervised by Pärnu City Government. The parking fee must be paid before or immediately after starting parking. Parking in a paid area of the city can be proven by displaying a parking ticket, or electronically. Parking using a text message is only available to customers of Estonian mobile operators. There are also several private parking lots available in the city, so be sure to take a look at information boards and traffic signs describing the parking procedure.

The largest private parking lot and parking house are located next to the Port Artur and Pärnu Keskus shopping centres in city centre. Private parking lots with various price levels are also available around the beach. Europark and Snabb are the most common parking solutions. The information about the zones and payment options is available on the information board by the parking lot.
