Estonia’s summer capital Pärnu is first and foremost known for the warm and white sandy beach. In addition to the beautiful beach, however, the city also boasts large green parks and long avenues of trees, where it is nice to take a walk or a bicycle ride.
Pärnu is a resort city of age-old traditions and a wealth of experience – the first bathing house in Pärnu was opened in 1838, allowing people to enjoy warm sea baths in the summer and the joys of sauna in the winter. The resort owes its popularity to the great location, gentle beach, fresh air, and green parks, but also the hustle and bustle of the city, as well as the high-quality treatment and relaxation services. The spas allow you to pamper your mind and your body any time of the year.

Other attractions include sailboat and boat rides, exotic terrarium animals, awesome playgrounds, and much more. The skating rink in the centre of the city awaits you in the winter.
