A summer destination for the whole family

Pärnu offers activities for everyone.

 

Within a few kilometres of Pärnu you will find the biggest racetrack in the Baltics, two high-quality golf courses, two adventure parks, and Estonia’s largest theme park, Lottemaa. If that’s not enough, then there are also over half a dozen spas and Estonia’s most popular beach.

Pärnu is also full of culture in summer. There are festivals or events taking place every weekend in the warmer months, with most of them taking place in July.

Younger visitors will enjoy the electronica festival Weekend Festival Baltic, taking place at the beginning of August. Art-lovers can head to the Contemporary Art Gallery, where the international nude art exhibition Man and Woman takes place every year, collecting works from Estonia and throughout Europe.

Heading towards Latvia, along Vana Riia road you will find many beautiful beachside villages worth a visit as a day trip. The area’s largest centre is in Häädemeeste. Along Via Baltica, enjoy the stunning views over the Gulf of Riga from Tolkuse watchtower. From here you can sometimes see all the way out to Kihnu island.

Kabli’s new attraction is the recently renovated RMK nature centre and the beautiful sandy beach. South from Kabli there are many RMK campgrounds and campfire sites. Around the area there are also many different kinds of accomodation, from hotels to farmstays.
