Come on holiday to Estonia's summer capital!

Pärnu is a West-Estonian resort with well-established traditions that has held the title of ’s summer capital and heart-warming town for over ten years. Pärnu is also a former Hanseatic town and hosted the 30th International Hanseatic Days medieval festival in 2010. 

During the sunny summer period, the beautiful, sandy beaches that invite both baskers and bathers become the heart of Pärnu. Beautiful nature, as attractive as the beach, can also be found throughout Pärnu County, which boasts a 242 km coastline. Many cultural and sports events, some of which have become local traditions, offer entertainment all year round.

The enthralling nature of Pärnu County, which offering ample, quality opportunities for active holidays, supplements the greenery of city parks and boulevards. Walks in the forest, kayak trips on rivers and the sea, riding, fishing, hunting trips, adventurous bog or canoe trips to Soomaa National Park and elsewhere in the county offer great escapes. In winter, you can partake in skiing, snowshoe and kick sledge trips, or a sledge safari and enjoy a sauna steam.

Kihnu Island is cosy and warm yet exotic; folk costumes are worn here every day and the handicraft of older generations remains highly valued. Several other romantic small islands and the Western Coast offer an opportunity to participate in local rites and customs.

EATING OUT !

After strolling in parks or when on a shopping spree, a cup of tea or coffee and a delicious cake in one of the many cafes is just what you need. If your active day worked up your appetite there is fine dining available in a wide variety of venues, many with a menu from far-flung places, such as Asia or Mexico, not to mention Estonian, Russian, French or Italian cuisines. If you like to dine in style, there is medieval or 1930s Estonian-style cuisine too. There are fewer eateries in the countryside but on the main roads you are sure to find some. Most accommodation providers in the countryside have food available if you book in advance and also offer good local and artisanal food. The wonderful outdoors is good not only for rambling but also for picnicking.

SIGHTS !

The historic centre and the romantic beach area are distinct yet integrated in harmony and perfect for a leisurely stroll. Your attention will be attracted by traces from the Middle Ages, the early period of the elegant resort, the long Soviet era or our modern day developments. We advise taking trips into the county and following the routes of Western, Northern and Southern Sun Journeys. There are a host of enchanting (coastal) villages, churches, manorial estates, museums, arts and crafts workshops and natural heritage sites to be seen. The most important attractions of the county are the island of Kihnu with its traditional culture, included in the UNESCO’s list of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage, and Soomaa National Park with its famous “fifth season”. Tõstamaa manor, recently restored to its former glory and home to a local school, an ancient Estonian stronghold at Soontagana, the Estonian Museum Railway at Lavassaare, Carl Robert Jakobson’s farm museum at Kurgja, fishermen’s villages on the Old-Riga road running south along the coast from Pärnu, to name but a few, are awaiting to be visited.
