The rich history of Pärnu and the joyful daily life offer something for everyone. The centre of Pärnu, the lovely parks and the resort area with its famous sandy beach and promenade invite you for long walks. There are sights to be seen dating to the distant Middle Ages, the elegant early years of the resort, the long Soviet era as well as the modern times with their fast-paced development. We also recommend you to take a tour outside the city. The coast full of islets, pine dune forests and natural sand beaches, vibrant fishing culture, and bogs and indigenous forests is waiting for the curious-minded. There are lovely (fishing) villages, churches, manor complexes, museums, and valuable wildlife everywhere.
