WHAT TO DO IN PÄRNU ?

Look, what to do in Pärnu, what to see and where to eat.

TAKE A WALK IN THE OLD TOWN

The heart of Pärnu’s Old Town is Rüütli street. Rüütli Street is considered to be the main street in Pärnu because it has been a historically important trade street. The pedestrian-only street fascinates with its façades, cobblestone road, floral decorations and outdoor cafés in the side streets.

DISCOVER PÄRNU BY BIKE

There are over 70 kilometers of light traffic roads in Pärnu. Therefore, the bicycle can be considered one of the best ways of transport to discover Pärnu. In a few hours you can make a big tour in the city, seeing areas that the average visitor often does not get to. There are several bicycle rental companies operating in Pärnu. Some companies rent their bikes all year round. Additionally, in the summertime it is possible to rent electric scooters.

ENJOY THE BEACH OF PÄRNU

The famous Sandy Beach of Pärnu is only a 15-minute walk from the City Centre. Thanks to the shallow and rapidly warming water of Pärnu Bay, Pärnu Beach is an excellent place for bathing. The coastline of Pärnu is nearly 2 kilometres long, which means that there is room for everyone. The favorite place for romantics in all four seasons is the Pärnu beach promenade with its stylish lightning and colored fountains.

MOLE OF PÄRNU

Constructed once to deepen the port and boost trade, the mole of Pärnu (often also referred to as the Jetty of Pärnu) is one of the city’s most interesting sights. At the beginning of 2019, a new illuminated boardwalk to the mole was completed. There are seating benches and bicycle racks on the trail. Legend: According to an ancient legend, young lovers have to walk to the end of the mole and seal their love with a kiss there. When you reach the mole, be careful because the stones can be slippery!

PÄRNU MOAT

Pärnu moat is full of charm, from the well-lit promenade that winds its way around it to the romantic footbridge that spans it and the fountain that spurts up in the middle of it (which happens to be the highest in Estonia). The amphitheatre-style concert venue here is the perfect place to soak up a bit of culture. You can explore the passageways between fortresses made of compacted soil and admire the restored Tallinn Gate, the starting point of an old postal route. A special playground will keep the little ones entertained.

COASTAL MEADOW HIKING TRAIL AND URBAN COWS

Explore the unique ecosystem of the city on 600 m hiking trail with a viewing platform, which stands right by the sea in the middle of the Pärnu beach. In May, cows are brought here to maintain the meadows as they eat the reed and look adorable doing so. They are kept here until October. The trail that rises gradually is accessible for strollers and wheelchairs for everyone to enjoy the outdoors.
