Tallinn Gate, Parnu

(65 reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Once the only exit to the postal road leading to Tallinn, today the medieval Tallinn Gate serves as the city's only surviving piece of a 17th-century fortification. This Baroque arched passage once offered the only entrance and exit from the town; the rest was walled in. In the 19th century all the walls were destroyed, leaving only this passage as a reminder of the Swedish period. You can still walk through this pink-and-white monument, which was largely restored in recent years. A strange local legend says that everyone who has been unfaithful in their present relationship can repent under this arch and have their relationship restored.

  • This gate is clearly an important site in Parnu and well worth visiting and walking along the park and former city walls. The old town is small and can easily be seen in an afternoon.  more »
  • Of course these gates in present shape can not withstand any military action, but it is very nice sample of representation constructions from early 19 century.  more »
  • Old kings gate, and part of Pärnu city wall. There are restaurant beside. A nice place, canal and waterfountain in front, the bridge over anl is lighted at night.  more »
