Tallinn Gate, Parnu
(2.9/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • At the tourist office in Pärnu is information on the Swedish fortifikatören Erik Dalbergh has designed the gate! In older works, one finds that another fortifikatör and architect von Essen drew the gate but Erik Dalbergh airbrushed the "everything for Italian style!!!! Many of the foreign tour groups staying at SPA_hotell in Pärnu, wander through this great port!

  • Gates, the only surviving structure from the old fortifications. Nothing special there. Purposefully walked across town and arriving at realized that for nothing. We took some pictures and went on.

  • Immaculate viličestvenno. Necessarily have to pass through this gate and plunge or immerse yourself in the story.
