Tallinn Gate, Parnu

#11 of 37 in Things to do in Parnu
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.

    Very central location, serves as a landmark. It would probably be worthy of the name. And rain protection. Otherwise, a bit small.

Where to stay in Parnu

With a selection of accommodation on the Parnu River and Parnu Bay, there is no shortage in Parnu of old hotels with gorgeous views of the seaside, historical buildings, and picturesque parks. In a city known for its spas and beaches, staying just outside the city may defeat the purpose of your trip to Parnu. Fortunately, most lodging here fits a mid-range budget. Consider a spa-hotel combination where you can take advantage of luxurious services without stepping foot outside. Alternatively, choose something near the beach for quick access to the sun and sand.
