Pärnu: sprint, spurt, and rest

Sports and relaxation are two fundamentally different values that cannot be combined. At first. But they really can be. In Pärnu, this has been done since 1251.

It was a bit of a bumpy start, when the emphasis had to be more on competitive rather than combat sports. Our ancestors came second in the first land contest, against the invaders from Lithuania. Next, they headed to the opposite bank of the river, to Uus-Pärnu. You could say to relax, though.

 

We have done better from then on. The first sports clubs emerged, the first sports heroes were born. In what area? Whichever area you prefer. Rowing and skiing, boxing and badminton, tennis and golf, swimming and paintball are just a few examples. There is no sport that Pärnu is not involved in. At both amateur and elite level.

And all in the cosy, resort town atmosphere. Bring your family or a group of supporters, give it your best in a sporting competition, and then swim together in a water park, walk in the parks or watch the sea basking in the sun while lounging on a warm beach. That is the way it has always been and always worked here. Already since 1251.
