Book

Lydia Koidula (1843–1886) was a famous poetess and publicist during the national awakening of Estonia who spent her youth in Pärnu. The memorial museum works in the house that was her home from 1850 to 1863. It is known as Pärnu Ülejõe Schoolhouse where her father JV Jannsen, who is also the father of journalism in the Estonian language, worked at the time as the schoolmaster.
Your can learn about their lives and activities in the context of national awakening in Estonia, take a look at a typical school and home from the middle of the 19th century and find out about the start of Estonian journalism (Perno Postimees from 1857).
